Please note this event is now SOLD OUT.
A CONVERSATION WITH PRESIDENT DONNA SHALALA: In My Beloved World
(Knopf, $27.95), with startling candor and intimacy, Supreme Court Justice
Sonia Sotomayor recounts her life from a Bronx housing project to the
federal bench, a progress that is testament to her extraordinary determination
and the power of believing in oneself. She writes of her precarious childhood
and the refuge she took with her passionately spirited paternal grandmother.
She describes her resolve as a young girl to become a lawyer, and how she made
this dream become reality: valedictorian of her high school class, summa cum
laude at Princeton, Yale Law, prosecutor in the Manhattan D.A.'s office,
private practice, federal district judge before the age of forty. 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-discovery and
self-invention, alongside Barack Obama's Dreams from My Father. TICKETS ARE REQUIRED FOR THIS EVENT:
