Working on this book has been so rewarding. I’ve learned even more about Justice Ginsburg’s life, work, and essential RBGoodness, and also learned the challenges and pleasures of writing in the graphic novel format. I had an excuse for indulging one of my guilty pleasures–listening to audio files of Supreme Court oral arguments, from the 1970s to today.
And Justice Ginsburg generously sat down with me last August for a wide-ranging interview which, yes, was a life highlight.
The manuscript is done–written, revised dozens of times, edited and re-edited, and then edited some more–and now I look forward to watching Whitney Gardner animate it with her vibrant art. Based on the sketches she produced last year, I know I will not be disappointed, and neither will readers.
But illustrating the panels for a graphic-novel-style book of 200+ pages takes time. So here’s something to tide you over: the terrific documentary film called, simply, RBG. (I had nothing to do with the movie! I just really like it.) Take the kids, the students, the parents, the grandparents! Enjoy. And please mark your to-be-read calendars: Becoming RBG: Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s Journey to Justice, coming August 2019.
