Justice is Served by Leslie Karst

 Quick thinking makes for a great memoir!

Leslie Karst’s Justice Served is so inspiring. First, on the spur of the moment when she heard her father, a lawyer, invited Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg to speak at an event, she suggested her invite her for dinner. Then, what good fortune, RBG accepted! How exciting is that? Wow, it just proves that you should always take a chance because you never know what will happen. 

Of course, once the invitation was accepted the fun really began. Leslie had to come out with an ambitious menu and a game plan. 

That’s why this book is so much fun. From devising a menu, to thinking up subjects to talk about at dinner, the planning for such an important dinner is lots of fun. Leslie also includes segments that feature RBG’s cases, her background, and important events in her life. 

This is a book you should not miss–and try out the recipes! I made the roasted squash soup. Delicious! 

High Praise for Justice is Served...

—Karen Shimizu, Executive Editor, Food & Wine
