..Just In

My Own Words by Ruth Bader Ginsburg

has had a powerful and enduring influence on law, women s rights, and popular culture.
My Own Words offers Justice Ginsburg on wide-ranging topics, including gender equality, the workways of the Supreme Court, being Jewish, law and lawyers in opera, and the value of looking beyond US shores when interpreting the US Constitution. Throughout her life Justice Ginsburg has been (and continues to be) a prolific writer and public speaker. This book s sampling is selected by Justice Ginsburg and her authorized biographers Mary Hartnett and Wendy W. Williams. Justice Ginsburg has written an introduction to the book, and Hartnett and Williams introduce each chapter, giving biographical context and quotes gleaned from hundreds of interviews they have conducted. This is a fascinating glimpse into the life of one of America s most influential women."

Pond by Claire-Louise Bennett

Atmospheric & cerebral musings make up this melanchly & often humorous exploration of solitude.  Pond's narrator is a woman with very specific ideas on how to arrange flaked almonds in a bowl of porridge, who hosts a dinner party because she has "so many glasses after all".  Set against the changing season of a small village in rural Ireland, Pond is a pleasurable meditation on home and community. --Morgan
