The Honorable John Paul Stevens - Five Chiefs @ Sixth & I Synagogue - SOLD OUT

Monday, November 7, 2011 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm

On Monday, November 7, Politics & Prose will host Justice John Paul Stevens when he presents his new book Five Justices at Sixth and I Synagogue.

When he resigned last June, Justice Stevens was the third longest serving Justice in American history (1975 - 2010); only Justice William O. Douglas, whom Stevens succeeded, and Stephen Field have served on the Supreme Court for a longer time. In Five Chiefs: A Supreme Court Memoir, Justice Stevens captures the inner workings of the Court through his personal experiences with the five Chief Justices: Fred Vinson, Earl Warren, Warren Burger, William Rehnquist, and John Roberts.

He reminisces of being a law clerk during Vinson's tenure; a practicing lawyer for Warren; a circuit judge and junior justice for Burger; a contemporary colleague of Rehnquist; and a colleague of current Chief Justice John Roberts. He shares his views of some of the most significant cases that have been decided by the Court.

Justice Stevens will be in-conversation with Judge David Tatel. Judge Tatel was appointed to the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia in 1994.

Two free tickets will be provided with each purchase of the book from P&P. Additional tickets are $12 (or $15 the day of the event). Prepayment is required to secure reservations. Books and tickets cannot be held without a confirmed payment. There will not be a book signing after this event.



We are no longer taking orders for tickets, books that include tickets, or signed books to be shipped or picked up after the event.
