      EVENT DETAILS
      Debbie Levy - Becoming RBG: Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s Journey to Justice—in Children & Teens

      Young Ruth Bader Ginsburg knew she had the intelligence and passion for law school and a lifelong interest in social justice. But would she, one of only nine women in a class of 500 men, be taken seriously? After earning a degree despite rampant sexism, Ginsburg used her expertise and hard-won connections to challenge gender discrimination—first as a law professor, then as an attorney who argued landmark cases before the Supreme Court, and later as a federal judge. After an already impressive career, Ginsburg ascended to the same bench she’d argued in front of so many times before. This accessible, thoroughly-researched graphic novel chronicles the life of an iconic legal mind from early childhood to the present day. Ages 10 and up.
