Staff Reviews


Because of her no-nonsense, eloquent speeches and her civil rights–minded court rulings, Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is one of my heroes. This collection of writings, selected and introduced by Ginsburg and her authorized biographers, is filled with life stories and opinions on everything from gender equality to lawyers in opera. It gives us a glimpse into Ginsburg’s life, beliefs, and witty sense of humor and has a good dose of wisdom.

— Flannery

A personal role model of mine, RBG makes me believe in my conviction to be a feminist. These collections of her writings and speeches are inspiring and something we need to preserve for generations to come to illustrate how she was a credit to our society.

The 2019 Cabrillo Festival of Contemporary Music includes the premiere of a major new work inspired by the life of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg—When There Are Nine by composer Kristin Kuster. A libretto by poet Megan Levad features nine poems touching upon Justice Ginsburg’s life and the pivotal civil rights issues that she has faced over the course of her distinguished career. Starring the acclaimed mezzo-soprano Jamie Barton, the Grammy Award-winning vocal ensemble Roomful of Teeth, and the incomparable Cabrillo Festival Orchestra, this Festival commission promises to be–like “RBG” herself–innovative, relevant, and brave. Don't forget to grab your copy of My Own Words by Justice Ginsberg, and read more about the When There Are Nine and Notorious, here:
