“Notorious RBG: The Life and Times of Ruth Bader Ginsburg,” by Irin Carmon and Shana Knizhnik, is the featured selection for discussion in New Palestine.Library: HCPL - Sugar Creek Branch
Paraphrased from Amazon:
Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg never asked for fame—she has only tried to make the world a little better and a little freer.
But nearly a half-century into her career, something funny happened to the octogenarian: she won the Internet. Across America, people who weren’t even born when Ginsburg first made her name as a feminist pioneer are tattooing themselves with her face, setting her famously searing dissents to music, and making viral videos in tribute.
Notorious RBG, inspired by a multi-media blog page on Tumblr that amused Ginsburg herself, is more than just a love letter. It draws on intimate access to Ginsburg's family members, close friends, colleagues, and clerks. An original hybrid of reported narrative, annotated dissents, and rare archival photos and documents, the book reveals a woman who transcends generational divides.
