George Saunders on The Importance of Kindness: VIDEO


By Dianna Dilworth Comment

Bestselling author George Saunders has a new book out entitled, Congratulations, By The Way: Some Thoughts on Kindness.

The book is based on Saunders’ 2013 speech at Syracuse University’s graduation ceremony. In his talk, which went viral last year, Saunders talked about the importance of being kind in life. “What I regret most in my life are failures of kindness,” he said.

To promote the book, Random House teamed up with production company Above Average to create a video using audio clips from the speech. We’ve embedded the video above for you to explore.
