12 May Very Good Lives: J.K. Rowling Commencement
The creator of Harry Potter is back to create Very Good Lives. We noticed this book at our local Starbuck’s at the checkout counter and made an impulse buy. A very good impulse buy. This should be a must-read for graduates and everyone else as well. Simple, quick, easy to read, easy to understand, immediate action items – all of those keywords businesses and busy people look for. More than anything though, it is encouragement and a simple blueprint to live a very good life.
J.K. Rowling, one of the world’s most inspiring writers, shares her wisdom and advice.
In 2008, J.K. Rowling delivered a deeply affecting commencement speech at Harvard University. Now published for the first time in book form, VERY GOOD LIVES presents J.K. Rowling’s words of wisdom for anyone at a turning point in life. How can we embrace failure? And how can we use our imagination to better both ourselves and others?
Drawing from stories of her own post-graduate years, the world famous author addresses some of life’s most important questions with acuity and emotional force.
Sales of VERY GOOD LIVES will benefit both Lumos, a non-profit international organization founded by J.K. Rowling, which works to end the institutionalization of children around the world, and university-wide financial aid at Harvard University.
