Join U.S. Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor in a moderated conversation with award-winning artist Rafael López, followed by an audience Q & A and signing line. Please see event guidelines below.

In the new picture book "Just Ask!: Be Different, Be Brave, Be You", Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor and award-winning artist Rafael López create a kind and caring book about the differences that make each of us unique. Feeling different, especially as a kid, can be tough. But in the same way that different types of plants and flowers make a garden more beautiful and enjoyable, different types of people make our world more vibrant and wonderful. Sonia Sotomayor celebrates the different abilities kids (and people of all ages) have. Using her own experience as a child who was diagnosed with diabetes, Sotomayor writes about children with all sorts of challenges--and looks at the special powers those kids have as well. As the kids work together to build a community garden, asking questions of each other along the way, this book encourages readers to do the same: When we come across someone who is different from us but we're not sure why, all we have to do is Just Ask.

Event Guidelines:

1. Signing Line: A copy of "Just Ask!: Be Different, Be Brave, Be You" or "¡Solo pregunta!: Sé Diferente, Sé Valiente, Sé Tú", the Spanish edition, will be required to enter the signing line. In addition to signing these new books (required to enter the signing line), Justice Sotomayor will also sign copies of her other books: "My Beloved World", "Turning Pages", and "The Beloved World of Sonia Sotomayor". All of The English and Spanish editions of the above titles will be available for purchase at the event. To ensure we get through everyone in the signing line, there will be no personalizations and no photos with attendees.

2. Q & A Question Submissions Due August 15th: We ask that audience members submit their questions via email (cbwchildrensbooks@gmail.com) or in person at Childrens Book World by August 15th.

3. To avoid distracting others during the conversation/Q&A portion of the event, no use of recording or electronic devices will be allowed.

Tickets are nonrefundable.
