Loved it

Sonia Sotomayor autograph

My Beloved World
by Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor

A couple weeks ago, my friend Katie and I went to Town Hall and saw Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor talk about her memoir, My Beloved World, with Eric Liu. I only knew the basics before going, but it turns out she is indeed remarkable. (So remarkable, this lawyer-dense audience hung on her every word.) Reading her book afterward–every  audience member was given a free, autographed copy–only reinforced those good vibes and feelings of respect.

What impressed me the most as I learned about Sotomayor’s life was both her humility and passion for learning. No airs, no entitlement–just unrelenting hard work, kindness, and a deep commitment to fairness. Let’s hope she writes another soon, with compelling book tour to go with. : )
