Title
Dinners with Ruth: A Memoir on the Power of Friendships

Nina Totenberg shines a light on the inner workings of the nation’s highest court and helps audiences understand the impact of headline-making judicial cases on America’s future. One of the country’s most respected journalists and a doyenne of the Supreme Court, Totenberg is National Public Radio’s award-winning legal affairs correspondent. With more than forty years’ experience at NPR, her reports are regularly featured on NPR’s All Things ConsideredMorning Edition, and Weekend Edition.

Totenberg has won every major journalism award in broadcasting and holds the distinction of being the first radio journalist to have won the National Press Foundation’s “Broadcaster of the Year” award. Referred to as “the crème de la crème” of NPR by Newsweek, Totenberg shares her seasoned reflections on the Supreme Court, top legal issues affecting everyday Americans, and the important cases being considered by the court. In-depth and wildly thought-provoking, her deep experience and nuanced perspective provides audiences insight into today’s judicial headlines like no one else can.

A tribute and testament to her nearly fifty-year friendship with Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg, Totenberg’s memoir, Dinners With Ruth: A Memoir on the Power of Friendships, will be published by Simon & Schuster in September 2022.
