Women's Book Discussion Group

April 29th
7:00 - 8:30 PM

Our April book selection is My Own Words by Ruth Bader Ginsburg with Mary Hartnett and Wendy W Williams. According to Goodreads, My Own Words “showcases Ruth Ginsburg's astonishing intellectual range” (The New Republic). In this collection Justice Ginsburg discusses gender equality, the workings of the Supreme Court, being Jewish, law and lawyers in opera, and the value of looking beyond US shores when interpreting the US Constitution.

If you’d like to prepare for our upcoming discussions, our next book selection will be Caste, the Origins of Our Discontent by Isabel Wilkerson. Since the wait list for the library can be quite long, start your library search now so that you can obtain this excellent book.

Nancy Holland will facilitate the next book discussion and will send out the Zoom link before the April  meeting. For more information, contact Margery Pope, radkova@sbcglobal.net.
