SOLD OUT: Politics and Prose Presents SONIA SOTOMAYOR
Join us in welcoming U.S. Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor to celebrate the release of her two new children's books, TURNING PAGES: My Life Story and THE BELOVED WORLD OF SONIA SOTOMAYOR.
Sotomayor will discuss her life story, from her birthplace in the South Bronx through her journey to become the first Hispanic and third woman appointed to the Supreme Court. Her picture book TURNING PAGES, vibrantly illustrated by Lulu Delacre, shares how Sotomayor's life was shaped and propelled forward by her family, her own determination, and the books she read.

In sharing her own story, Sotomayor encourages children to read widely and dream big.
