Date: October 7, 2020
Time: 1:30 pm

Join Jewish Book Council and its JBC Network partners for a very special conversation with Jeffrey Rosen and Dahlia Lithwick about Rosen's new book, "Conversations with RBG: Ruth Bader Ginsburg on Life, Love, Liberty, and Law."

In "Conversations with RBG," Rosen, president and CEO of the National Constitution Center, a law professor at GW, and a contributing editor at "The Atlantic," presents a unique portrait of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, drawing on twenty years of conversations starting in the 1990s and continuing through the Trump Era. In the book, they discuss the future of Roe v. Wade, her favorite dissents, the cases she would most like to see overruled, the #MeToo movement, how to be a good listener, how to lead a productive and compassionate life, and the future of the Supreme Court itself.
