Evan Thomas, First: Sandra Day O'Connor

 

Join us for a luncheon at the beautiful Union League Club where bestselling author and journalist Evan Thomas speaks about his intimate, inspiring and authoritative biography of Sandra Day O'Connor, America's first female Supreme Court Justice, drawing on exclusive interviews and first-time access to Justice O'Connor's archives. She was born in 1930 in El Paso and grew up on a cattle ranch in Arizona. At a time when women were expected to be homemakers, she set her sights on Stanford University, but when she graduated near the top of her law school class in 1952, no firm would even give her an interview. Her story is that of a woman who repeatedly shattered glass ceilings -- doing so with a blend of grace, wisdom, humor, understatement, and cowgirl toughness. 

This is a ticketed luncheon event.  Call us at 847-446-8880 to reserve your place. The Union League Club has a dress code of business casual, no denim please.
