    Skirball Cultural Center Exhibit Tour – February 10th, 12pm.

    Join your friends, colleagues and other area information professionals at the Skirball Cultural Center to experience the highly acclaimed current exhibition, "Notorious RBG: The Life and Times of Ruth Bader Ginsburg." Coinciding with the twenty-fifth anniversary of RBG's appointment to the high court, this is the first-ever retrospective about the famed associate justice and American cultural icon.

    Explore the American judicial system through one of its sharpest legal minds, plus:

    • "Ride" along with Ruth and her future husband Martin Ginsburg, a.k.a. "Marty," on their first date.
    • Watch RBG work out! Not bad for someone over 80!
    • Dress up as justices and make your voice heard at a recreation of the Supreme Court bench.
    • Stop at ten listening stations and hear RBG's delivery of oral arguments, majority opinions, and forceful dissents in landmark Supreme Court cases.

    You'll also have a chance mingle with other information professionals over a lovely buffet lunch. The fee, which includes lunch and admission to exhibitions, is $25 for members of SLA, or other Information Professional associations (ALA, AAL, ARLIS, AIIM, ARMA, SAA, etc.), $20.00 for students, unemployed and retired members, and $30 for non-members

    Since we need a firm headcount for the lunches, registration closes February 7th.
