American Enterprise Institute. As we celebrate the 225th anniversary of the U.S. Constitution, and as the Supreme Court prepares to open a new term, Justice Antonin Scalia and noted legal lexicographer Bryan Garner have released a new book, “Reading Law: The Interpretation of Legal Texts.” In this comprehensive volume, the authors address key questions surrounding the relationship between written laws and their drafters and interpreters, including: Do fundamental principles exist for interpreting legal texts? From where are those principles derived? Do they exist independent of the will of the interpreter, and are they binding on judges? Join Justice Scalia for a discussion of these important issues at this book forum cosponsored by the Federalist Society and AEI. A wine and cheese reception will follow, and books will be available for purchase. Please note that there will be no video or audio broadcast of this event. Audio recordings are only allowed for the purpose of note taking. For more information on this event and to RSVP, please visit
