Library Presents Living-History Portrayal Of Ruth Bader Ginsburg Mar. 18


Los Alamos Library System welcomes the community to attend a  living-history portrayal of Ruth Bader Ginsburg in honor of Women’s History Month live at  Fuller Lodge on Saturday, March 18th, from 1 to 2:30 pm. The program, Ruth Bader Ginsburg:  Notorious RBG, is free to the public and is made possible by the generous support of the New  Mexico Humanities Council. The event will also be livestreamed to accommodate those who  prefer to attend online. See below for registration information.  

Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who passed away in September 2020, is celebrated for her work as an  attorney, federal judge, and Supreme Court justice (notably on behalf of gender equality). Her  life will be presented by Dr. Dianne Layden in both a lecture and Chautauqua portrayal that  includes her judicial opinions, family life, and reverence for opera. Ginsburg’s friendship with  fellow justice and opera lover Antonin Scalia became the subject of the opera Scalia/Ginsburg,  now performed worldwide. She visited Santa Fe with her family for many years and called the  Santa Fe Opera the finest summer opera company in the world.  

The public will have the opportunity to pose questions and have them answered through Dr.  Layden’s best interpretation of RBG’s persona. It’s a delightful opportunity for people of all ages  to learn about a renowned historical figure in an entirely unique and interactive way. Dr. Layden  is a semi-retired college professor and writer with a background in American Studies. Her  research interests include New Mexico history and culture, public violence, and social justice. 

Registration is recommended for in-person attendees and required for online attendees. To  register, please visit the event calendar at or call (505) 662-8257.
