AT&T Performing Arts Center and Interabang Books present An Evening with Sonia Sotomayor
AT&T Performing Arts Center and Interabang Books will present an evening with U.S. Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor to celebrate the release of her two new children’s books, Turning Pages: My Life Story (available in English and Spanish) 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. The Beloved World of Sonia Sotomayor is the middle grade adaptation of My Beloved World, her No. 1 New York Times-bestselling memoir. In sharing her own story, Sotomayor encourages children to read widely and dream big.
