During this remarkable evening, Judge Wolf speaks on rule of law and judicial independence, with specific reference to an original letter within the library’s collection written by Chief Justice John Marshall on the day in 1801 that he swore in Thomas Jefferson as president. Justice O’Connor will be presented with a reproduction copy of the library’s “Fundamental Constitutions of Carolina” by John Locke before a reception. Charleston Library Society, 164 King St. Wednesday, 6-7 p.m. $50. (843) 723-9912, charlestonlibrarysociety.net
