October Book Club

Our Book Club selection for October is My Beloved World, by Sonia Sotomayor. The book is available through our Hennepin County Library System.

Ms. Sotomayor, the first Hispanic on the U.S. Supreme Court –tells the story of her life before becoming a judge in an inspiring personal memoir. With startling candor and intimacy, she 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.

Join us Monday, October 19 at 10:00 a.m. at Bruegger’s Bagels in St Louis Park when we discuss the book.
