Conversations with RBG: A Book Talk with Jeffrey Rosen

National Constitution Center President and CEO Jeffrey Rosen unveils his newest book, Conversations with RBG: Ruth Bader Ginsburg on Life, Love, Liberty, and Law—an informal portrait of the justice through an extraordinary series of conversations, starting in the 1990s and continuing to today. With Justice Ginsburg’s approval, Rosen has collected her wisdom from their many conversations in which she discusses the future of the Supreme Court and Roe v. Wade, her favorite dissents, the cases she would most like to see overruled, the #MeToo movement, how to be a good listener, and how to lead a productive, compassionate life. These frank exchanges illuminate the determination, self-mastery, and wit that have inspired women and men of all ages to embrace the “Notorious RBG.” Dahlia Lithwick, veteran Supreme Court reporter, moderates.
