Joan Biskupic talked about her biography of U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Antonin Scalia and Barry Friedman discussed the thesis that the Supreme Court responds as much to popular opinion as constitutional precedent. After both authors made their presentations, they responded to questions from members of the audience.

Joan Biskupic is the author of American Original: The Life and Constitution of Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia (Farrar, Straus and Giroux; November 10, 2009). Joan Biskupic has covered the Supreme Court since 1989. She previously authored a biography of Justice Sandra Day O’Connor.

Barry Friedman is the author of The Will of the People: How Public Opinion Has Influenced the Supreme Court and Shaped the Meaning of the Constitution (Farrar, Straus and Giroux; September 29, 2009), in which he examines the history of the relationship between popular opinion and the Supreme Court from 1776 to the present.

This event of the 26th Miami Book Fair International took place Saturday, November 14, 2009, 4:30 a.m., in Room 3208/3209 of Miami Dade College, Wolfson Campus. close
