Speech – March reading

J K Rowling’s speech and address to the Harvard University Graduates on the benefits of failure and importance of imagination in 2008, is our read for the month of March 2014.

There are a couple of different ways to experience this speech – you can check out the text here at The Harvard University Gazette page.  Or you can view the TED audio here or here.

I love this speech, maybe you will love it too.

Maybe it will inspire you to read a well known or (as yet) little known J K Rowling book!
