A life’s work

Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s new book will be first since becoming a justice

By WITW Staff on March 10, 2016

She became the subject of a successful book last year, now Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg will tell the story of her life through some of her own, previously-written words. An announcement from publisher Simon and Schuster, as reported by Jezebel, said the book will be the justice’s first since being sworn to the bench in 1993 and will be a collaborative effort between the Notorious R.B.G. and her authorized biographers — both of whom are women.

My Own Words will be “a selection of writings and speeches by Justice Ginsburg on wide-ranging topics, including gender equality, the workways of the Supreme Court, on being Jewish, on law and lawyers in opera, and on the value of looking beyond U.S. shores when interpreting the U.S. Constitution,” the press release said.

Ginsburg’s first book in the 1960s was about Swedish law, for which she prepared by sitting down and learning the language. Yeah, she’s worth the hype.
