The New York Times bestselling book from Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg—“a comprehensive look inside her brilliantly analytical, entertainingly wry mind, revealing the fascinating life of one of our generation's most influential voices in both law and public opinion” (Harper’s Bazaar).

In this collection Justice Ginsburg discusses gender equality, the workings of the Supreme Court, being Jewish, law and lawyers in opera, and the value of looking beyond US shores when interpreting the US Constitution.

Williams, who introduce each chapter and provide biographical context and quotes gleaned from hundreds of interviews they have conducted.Witty, engaging, serious, and playful, My Own Words is a fascinating glimpse into the life of one of America’s most influential women and “a tonic to the current national discourse” (The Washington Post).

Kandi & Jerry Bostic
Thank you everyone for visiting our site, and eventually our store. I, Jerry, worked and managed the old Hastings in Ardmore for 11 years from 1999-2010. After leaving in 2010, Hastings never left my heart, or how I went about managing other things throughout the course of the last 11 years. I have so many memories of the store that I can't imagine going back into retail in this fashion and not paying homage to the brand that taught me so much about managing and life. Sharing this venture with my significant other is a dream come true, and we can't wait to show you what we believe Hastings would look like in 2021 and beyond, through Hastings Toys and more!
