My daughters are big fans of the Harry Potter series. I respect the wonderful, huge, imaginative world that J.K. Rowling has created, yet I never really heard her speak.
While trolling around TED, I found this video, and I encourage anyone to view it.
Check out “J.K. Rowling Speaks at Harvard Commencement” by Harvard Magazine on Vimeo.
The video is available for your viewing pleasure at http://vimeo.com/1711302
At her Harvard commencement speech, “Harry Potter” author JK Rowling offers some powerful, heartening advice to dreamers and overachievers, including one hard-won lesson that she deems “worth more than any qualification I ever earned.”
JK Rowling penned the bestselling Harry Potter page-turners — a spellbinding, seven-installment fantasy of wizards, warlocks and decidedly British texture that brought her from rags to riches.
