Date(s) - 11/01/2016
12:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Selection: “Notorious RBG: the Life and TImes of Ruth Bader Ginsburg” (NF) by Irin Carmon and Shana Knizhnik.

(The authors)…”write powerfully about the progression of Ginsburg’s legal career. In particular, they make vivid the development of her trademark arguments … In her fierce honesty, resolute realness, and, yes, innate sense of style (those collars!), Ginsburg emerges as a cultural icon worthy of her own fanbase.” (The Boston Globe)  “What a wonderful book:  The annotated dissents! The knockout photos! Why she likes to write through the night! The litany of big cases she won as a lawyer, and how she picked them!  How she made Bill Clinton cry!…(It) is a laugh-out-loud joy to read.” (Rachel Maddow).

Please join us on November 1 at noon in the Fireside Room to discuss this enjoyable, informative book.
