That Great George Saunders Commencement Speech, Animated

Last year, George Saunders gave a commencement speech at Syracuse that was published by the New York Times and shared far and wide. On Tuesday it became a 64-page book called Congratulations, by the Way: Some Thoughts on Kindness.

To mark the occasion, Random House and Above Average worked with Serious Lunch to produce an abridged version, narrated by Saunders, in animated form. Enjoy.
