On Tuesday, January 28, Roosevelt House hosted Jeffrey Rosen, president of the National Constitution Center and Professor of Law at The George Washington University Law School, to discuss his new book, Conversations with RBG: Ruth Bader Ginsburg on Life, Love, Liberty, and Law. Rosen, a veteran legal journalist and scholar, shared with guests the justice’s observations on a variety of topics, and shed light on her intellect, compassion, sense of humor, and humanity.

Topics discussed in the book include the future of Roe v. Wade, RBG’s 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 of course the future of the Supreme Court itself. These frank exchanges illuminate the steely determination, self-mastery, and wit that have inspired Americans of all ages to embrace the woman known as “Notorious RBG.”
