The first Hispanic and third woman appointed to the United State Supreme Court, Justice Sonia Sotomayor, will visit the Pratt Central Library to discuss her new memoir, My Beloved World on Thursday, February 28 at 7 p.m. Seats will be filled on a first come, first served basis the evening of the event. Doors open at 6:30.
Since her appointment in 2009, Justice Sotomayor has become an instant American icon. In My Beloved World, she recounts her journey from a Bronx housing project to the federal bench. Through her still-astonished eyes, America’s infinite possibilities are envisioned anew in this warm and honest book, destined to become a classic of self-invention and self-discovery and an inspiration to all.
Representatives from The Ivy Bookshop will be on hand with copies of the book for sale at the event.
The Pratt Central Library is located at 400 Cathedral Street. For more information visit The Ivy Bookshop website.
