“Jill Lepore is a national treasure.” – Adam Hochschild, author of Bury the Chains

“Everything Jill Lepore writes is distinguished by intelligence, eloquence, and fresh insight.” – Susan Orlean, author of The Orchid Thief and The Library Book

Award-winning historian and two-time Pulitzer Prize finalist Jill Lepore brings her panoptic range and razor-sharp style to a discussion of the Supreme Court's role in the U.S. Constitution’s unamendability. The U.S. Constitution was always meant to be added to and improved – amending is what makes the Constitution everyone’s, says Lepore. How has the U.S. Constitution become one of the most difficult in the world to change? And what are the consequences for a society whose constitution is frozen in time?
