Joan Biskupic - The Chief: The Life and Turbulent Times of Chief Justice John Roberts

Upcoming Event
Friday, March 29, 2019 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm

Biskupic’s authoritative portrait of Chief Justice Roberts presents a brilliant and deeply driven man whose twin goals of carrying out a conservative agenda while also protecting the Court’s image and place in history has led to divisiveness and distrust on and off the bench. Not arguing for or against Roberts’s ideas but striving simply to understand him and his legal philosophy, Biskupic, a legal analyst for CNN and the author of highly praised books on Sandra Day O'Connor, Antonin Scalia, and Sonia Sotomayor, delves into all facets of Roberts’ life to trace the evolution of his thinking. Her revelatory account is informed by her twenty-five years of experience covering the Court as well as by extensive interviews with Roberts’s friends, family, colleagues, and former classmates, and many off-the-record discussions with Justice Roberts himself.
