George Saunders's Advice to Graduates
Friday, May 09, 2014
Last Spring, author George Saunders gave a speech to graduates of Syracuse University that went viral when it was reprinted on The New York Times website. That speech has now been published and illustrated as the book Congratulations, By The Way: Some Thoughts on Kindness (Random House 2014). Saunders discusses his speech, the advice he gives, and why he thinks it hit such a nerve.
