Rowling

J.K.Rowling, author of the Harry Potter series, whose last name I have finally, authoritatively learned from her answer in a video interview, is pronounced 'rolling' as in Rolling Stone, gave the commencement speech at Harvard University in 2008.

YouTube directed me to this page for information about this speech: Harvard Commencement Speech where you can also read a transcript.

From that page:

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.

From the speech (which is titled:

"The Fringe Benefits of Failure, and the Importance of Imagination"

"There is an expiry date on blaming your parents for steering you in the wrong direction; the moment you are old enough to take the wheel, responsibility lies with you."
