JK Rowling delivers the Commencement Address at the Annual Meeting of the Harvard Alumni Association

One of the reasons I like delicious (a social bookmarks manager) so much, is that I never know what I will discover when I check in each day for a new batch of links on the web to peruse. Today, I found a link to J.K. Rowling Speaks at Harvard Commencement: Harvard Magazine. You can watch a video and/or listen to an audio recording as well as read the text via the link. Her speech, "The Fringe Benefits of Failure, and the Importance of Imagination" is incredibly powerful and well worth taking the time to read and/or listen to. I also found a report on the Harvard University website about her talk: Yes, it was a magical talk - Rowling casts spell at Afternoon Exercises (link via Harvard News Office, Harvard University Gazette Online)
