The Smithsonian Associates presents an evening with Antonin Scalia Tuesday, Feb. 12, 2013, at 7 p.m. at George Washington University’s Lisner

Auditorium, 730 21st St. N.W. Scalia will discuss his time on the Supreme Court, memorable and meaningful cases and his working life as an associate justice with Nina Totenberg, NPR’s legal affairs correspondent.

After taking his seat on the Supreme Court in 1986, Scalia quickly became known as one of the most powerful communicators on the bench, producing forceful and colorful oral arguments and written decisions. The audience will have a rare opportunity to get a more personal glimpse of a man who has been described as “the Supreme Court’s wittiest and most outspoken justice.”
