Ruth Bader Ginsburg recently came under fire for her critical comments about Donald Trump’s candidacy. Although she expressed regret, the Supreme Court Justice is no stranger to verbal combat.
In a forthcoming children’s book, I Dissent: Ruth Bader Ginsburg Makes Her Mark, Debbie Levy depicts the Justice’s life as “one disagreement after another.” (Ginsburg has seen the book but did not endorse it.) After a series of conflicts with teachers, classmates and courtroom foes, Ginsburg joins the Supreme Court and meets her favorite antagonist: fellow Justice Antonin Scalia.
The Ginsburg of I Dissent is a crusader, but she has a soft side: after she and Scalia vehemently disagree in court, they go parasailing in France and elephant riding in India. (Nonfiction!) In a true meeting of the minds, politics just doesn’t matter.
