Sonja Sotomayor made history when she became the first Hispanic judge to serve on the Supreme Court and the third woman to be appointed. Take a look at this fascinating history of the Supreme Court.

While we at Multnomah County Library are very excited that Sonia Sotomayor’s memoir, My Beloved World, is the 2014 Everybody Reads selection, she is not the only Supreme Court justice to have published a book. As long as there has been a Supreme Court, justices have been writing and publishing on a variety of topics. Most are, naturally, related to the law but there are also a handful of memoirs that can complement the experience of Justice Sotomayor. After you have finished My Beloved World, you might want to check out one of these. -Rod M.
