J.K. Rowling Speaks at Harvard Commencement

22 Feb

Yesterday, we could listen to the first half of this famous address to Harvard students by Harry Potter’s famous author J.K. Rowlings on the occasion of the 2008 Commencement ceremony at this University. You may wish to have a watch at the whole speech, there it is, as posted by Harvard Magazine on its Youtube Channel:

In addition, Harvard Magazine published Rowling’s address in written form on its own website. So here is the ready-made transcript.

Harvard Magazine’s Youtube Channel may be worthy a watch in itself. However, I wish to use this opportunity to draw your attention to another Youtube Academic Channel set up by another University, one that is as famous as Harvard and is located close to it, I mean of course the MIT. For those of you who study maths and physics as well as those who miss their maths classes from high school, this a wonderful resource platform that I highly recommend.
