Sandra Day O'Connor

About the Program

In this Encore Booknotes presentation from January 2001, retiring Associate Justice Sandra Day O'Connor talks about her memoir "Lazy B." Co-written with her brother, H. Alan Day, the book tells the story of three generations of the Day family and of growing up on the Lazy B Ranch in Arizona. Justice O’Connor’s grandfather set up the Lazy B in 1880 and the ranch developed and prospered under the care of her parents. The book recounts the cowboys, cattle drives and hardships of her youth, and the values instilled by a self-reliant way of life. The second volume of Justice O’Connor’s memoir, titled "The Majesty of the Law," was released in April 2003.
