The 2014 Everybody Reads selection is United States Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor’s My Beloved World. In partnership with Multnomah County Library and the Library Foundation, Literary Arts is pleased to present Justice Sotomayor at the Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall as the culminating event of the 12th annual community reading project on Tuesday, March 11, 2014 at 7:30 p.m.
The first Hispanic and third woman appointed to the Supreme Court, Sotomayor has become an American icon. In this autobiography, she details her journey from a Bronx housing project to the federal bench. My Beloved World is a story of love, self-discovery and human triumph. Despite having only television characters for professional role models when she was a child, Sotomayor resolved to become a lawyer. That dream took her from valedictorian of her high school class to the highest honors at Princeton, Yale Law School, the New York County District Attorney’s office, private practice and appointment to the Federal District Court by the age of 40.
Celebrate the power of books in creating a stronger community. Through a shared reading experience we will discuss issues that matter, learn from each other, and promote greater understanding.
