Notorious Ruth Bader Ginsburg Costume Party + Q&A + Book Signing
Oct 30, 2015 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm| Free
Fishs Eddy is pleased to announce a book signing + Q&A + costume party with Irin Carmon and Shana Knizhnik, authors behind the much anticipated Notorious RBG: The Life and Times of Ruth Bader Ginsburg, and Adam Serwer, National Editor, BuzzFeed News.
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.
But NOTORIOUS RBG, the book inspired by the Tumblr that amused the Justice herself, is more than just a love letter. It combines reported narrative, annotated dissents, rare archival photos and documents, and illustrations to tell the story of an unusual and transformative woman who transcends generational divides.
