From the New York Times bestselling author of I Dissent comes a biographical graphic novel about celebrated Supreme Court justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
Supreme Court justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is a modern feminist icon — a leader in the fight for equal treatment of girls and women in society and the workplace. She blazed trails to the peaks of the male-centric worlds of education and law, where women had rarely risen before.
Ruth Bader Ginsburg has often said that true and lasting change in society and law is accomplished slowly, one step at a time. This is how she has evolved, too. Step by step, the shy little girl became a child who questioned unfairness, who became a student who persisted despite obstacles, who became an advocate who resisted injustice, who became a judge who revered the rule of law, who became…RBG.
Cool Yule is a special seasonal event on Pop! Goes The Reader in which I put a fun twist on some of my regular features and share a number of new, holiday-themed posts including wallpapers, reviews, recipes, gift guides, and much more!
Anyone who knows me even a little knows that I love the holidays. I love the food, the music, the decorations, and especially the extra time spent with those I love. I also really love giving gifts.
For me, gift-giving is a year-round affair. Did you mention in May that you were searching for a book on Old Hollywood scandals or couldn’t wait to read the sequel to a book you absolutely loved the year before? Chances are I was surreptitiously making a note on my phone and you would eventually find that very thing waiting under the tree for you come December.
Of all the gifts I love to give, I particularly love book-inspired ones. Shocking, I know. There’s a particular joy in sharing what I love with others, and seeing that thing inspire joy in them, too. This year, I thought it might be fun to share a series of gift guides that will do just that. From mugs to enamel pins, jewelry to artwork, over the next couple of weeks I’ll be sharing a number of different gift guides for the literature lover in your life that will hopefully make this holiday season a little more fun, a lot less stressful, and maybe even help you love gift-giving, too.
