Welcome back to Literary Cobblestones!
For the final week of J.K. Rowling Appreciation Month on LitCobs, all of the posts are dedicated to off-the-page quotes of the author. Rowling is the queen of one-liners on the page, and this talent extends to her everyday conversations, interviews and speeches. Today’s quote comes from her Harvard Commencement speech in 2008, and you can find the full transcript and video of the speech in the link-curation below.
