Sandra Day O'Connor, H. Alan Day and Lynn Wiese Sneyd appear at the 2014 Library of Congress National Book Festival in Washington, D.C.

Speaker Biography: Sandra Day O'Connor made history when she became the first woman on the U.S. Supreme Court in 1981, following her unanimous confirmation by the U.S. Senate. She served on the court until 2006. In her home state of Arizona, O'Connor had been an elected official and the first woman majority leader in the nation as the Republican leader in the Arizona Senate. O'Connor will appear with her brother, H. Alan Day, and his co-author, Lynn Wiese Sneyd, during which she will interview them about their book, "The Horse Lover: A Cowboy's Quest to Save the Wild Mustangs" (Bison Books/University of Nebraska Press).

Speaker Biography: In his memoir "The Horse Lover: A Cowboy's Quest to Save the Wild Mustangs" (Bison Books/University of Nebraska Press), H. Alan Day recounts his mission to find a sanctuary for unadoptable wild horses previously warehoused by the Bureau of Land Management. His efforts resulted in the Mustang Meadows Ranch of South Dakota, the first government-sponsored wild-horse sanctuary established in the United States. In "The Horse Lover," Day recollects both his frustrating and adventurous times on the ranch, and he ultimately reveals the valuable lessons of loyalty, perseverance and hope that he gained along the way. Day is the co-author of the best-selling memoir "Lazy B," written with his sister, former Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O'Connor. His memoir, "The Horse Lover," is written with Lynn Wiese Sneyd and includes a foreword by Sandra Day O'Connor.
