Ruth Bader Ginsburg is writing a book.

My Own Words will be a selected compilation of the Supreme Court justice’s speeches and writings, with an introduction written by Ginsburg. The selections, to be published by Simon & Schuster, will include topics ranging from gender equality to the justice’s religious identity and her love of opera.

“Justice Ginsburg is one of the most important and articulate legal thinkers and interpreters in the country,” Simon and Schuster’s vice president and editorial director Alice Mayhew said in a press release by the publisher. “She is also a witty and engaged writer and speaker, and I am personally delighted to have another opera lover on board.”

The book, which is Ginsburg’s first since joining the Supreme Court in 1993, will be available in January 2017.
