For all our Heather Cox Richardson fans (including you secret fans) this book sounds quite interesting.
"Heather Cox Richardson
I am incredibly excited to tell you that I scored an interview with Dahlia Lithwick to talk here tonight at 8:00 EST.
Dahlia is one of the country's most important legal commentators. She's been covering the courts and the law for Slate since 1999-- where I first started reading her and was blown away-- hosts a legal-oriented podcast called Amicus, and is a contributor to MSNBC. Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg famously called her “spicy.”
I got her because she has a new book out called Lady Justice (I loved it and blurbed it), which has turned into a New York Times bestseller, so she's doing a publicity tour. The book is technically about how female lawyers used the law to stop the worst of former president Trump's actions, but is really about the special connection between women and the law.
I was all set to talk about that, but when we did our prep interview, she suggested she'd kind of rather talk about the upcoming Supreme Court term, which she says will be more important even than the last. So I will definitely ask a bit about the book-- because it's cool-- but will ask a lot about how she sees the upcoming cases.
Since I got to interview writer Rebecca Solnit last year, I have sort of, in the back of my mind, been playing with the idea that it would be nice to bring more voices to you all here. Cannot believe I get to try it out with Dahlia! (I used to be totally terrified of her because she's so smart, but it turns out she's also really nice.)"
