Welcome to this edition of In the Author's Voice! In the spring of 2012 a commencement speech given by high school English teacher David McCullough, Jr. went viral.
His message to the graduating class: 'you are not special.' That speech is now the basis of a new book. WSIU's Jeff Williams recently talked with McCullough about his view of the student experience and his new book You Are Not Special and Other Encouragements.
In the Author's Voice is a listener supported service of Southern Illinois University Carbondale and WSIU Radio.
