Please join the Vegetarian Society of DC Book Club discussion of My Beloved World by Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor. This meeting will take place Sunday afternoon instead of our usual Wednesday evening.

Participants must read at least half the book.

“My Beloved World is steeped in vivid memories of New York City, and it is an exceptionally frank account of the challenges that she faced during her ascent from a public housing project to the court’s marble palace on First Street.” -- The New York Times

For this meeting, a VSDC member is graciously providing a party room of an apartment building in Bethesda, Maryland, a few blocks from the metro station. This is not a lunch meeting, but feel free to bring your own (veg) lunch/snacks. People who RSVP "yes" will get the location information. For more details contact Beth through meet up. For more information about the book club (including everything we have read over 22 years!) visit http://www.vsdc.org/book.html

Be considerate...if your plans change, PLEASE update your RSVP!

    Seems like Sonia's ex-husband is now a (really good) patent lawyer in Chicago. http://www.mbhb.com/attorneys/noonan/

    I'm sorry I changed my RSVP on short notice. I need a day of rest instead of driving around the beltway. I read the entire book by Sotomayor but don't feel a great need to discuss it. Please keep me posted about future books and get-togethers!

    I heard the interview on Fresh Air as well. She is an eloquent, careful and sincere speaker and writer. Really enjoying the memoir so far!

    I heard an interview with Justice Sotomayor on Fresh Air yesterday and this book sounds more interesting than I expected with many layers. Eager to read it and happy to have the opportunity to discuss complete with vegan food!
