On Becoming the Notorious RBG

Coffee Talk with Authors Irin Carmon and Shana Knizhnik

Sunday, October 21, 11:00 a.m.

About the Program

Join Irin Carmon and Shana Knizhnik, authors of Notorious RBG: The Life and Times of Ruth Bader Ginsburg, as they discuss documenting one of the most unlikely popular icons.

What began on Tumblr by Knizhnik exploded into a cultural obsession complete with fashion accessories, a fitness regimen, memes, and more—all inspired by the extraordinary life and work of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

While you listen to Carmon and Knizhnik, enjoy a cup of coffee and a pastry prepared from a recipe of Justice Ginsburg’s late husband, Marty.

Notorious RBG: The Life and Times of Ruth Bader Ginsburg will be available for purchase. A book signing follows the program.

Check out the exhibition! Notorious RBG: The Life and Times of Ruth Bader Ginsburg will be FREE to program ticketholders on Sunday, October 21.
