J.K. Rowling, author of the best-selling Harry Potter book series, delivers her Commencement Address, “The Fringe Benefits of Failure, and the Importance of Imagination,” at the Annual Meeting of the Harvard Alumni Association.

J.K. Rowling Speaks at Harvard Commencement from Harvard Magazine on Vimeo.

I've just watched this video after 2 years of its publication, regret that I didn't watch it that time. Maybe I wouldn't fully grasp the idea of her speech, but I surely did this time. Hilarious, truthful, dramatic, courageous, tear blooming speech.
