A recent NY Times article on music mentioned that Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is an enthusiastic, life-long fan of opera. I found out how to send her a signed copy of my book with a little letter, although was not sure she’d even get it.
However, yesterday I received a personal note, on Supreme Court stationary.
She replied: “Today’s mail brought a special surprise, your novel “Aloha, Mozart.”
When I can lift my eyes from the piled briefs, I look forward to a reading
treat. With appreciation for thinking of me.
Mahalo, (thanks in Hawaiian),
(signed) Ruth Bader Ginsburg”
Made my day!
