Dinners with Ruth

Feb. 4, 2023

In the theme of Galentine’s Day and female friendships is NPR legal affairs correspondent Nina Totenberg’s book, Dinners with Ruth: A Memoir on the Power of Friendships. In the book, Totenberg chronicles her 50-year friendship with Ruth Bader Ginsburg, which began with a simple phone call and lasted through joys, illness, loss, and widowhood. The memoir also includes stories about the other women, friends, and family who inspired Totenberg as she blazed her own trail at NPR. At the City Opera House on Friday, Feb. 10, Totenberg will join the National Writers Series and Michigan Radio Stateside host April Baer to talk about her work. (Note: Totenberg will be Zooming in with April Baer on stage and a live audience.) The event is $37 and includes a copy of the book. If you’re attending virtually via the livestream option, the book will be shipped for an extra $5.50. For tickets and more information, visit
