Hi everyone,

I truly believe the more exposure to people that continue to want and do more in their lives, continues to inspire and strengthen our resolve to do the same--

I am so thankful that Austin continues to offer so many opportunities for us to hear them share their life stories with us for free--

Something about sitting Justice on the Supreme Court Ms Sotomayor--

Her book--

About My Beloved World: The first Hispanic and third woman appointed to the United States Supreme Court, Sonia Sotomayor has become an instant American icon. Now, with a candor and intimacy never undertaken by a sitting Justice, she recounts her life from a Bronx housing project to the federal bench, a journey that offers an inspiring testament to her own extraordinary determination and the power of believing in oneself.

About the author: Sonia Sotomayor graduated summa cum laude from Princeton in 1976 and from Yale Law School in 1979. She worked as an assistant district attorney in New York and then at the law firm of Pavia & Harcourt. From 1992 to 1998, she served as a judge of the U.S. District Court, Southern District of New York, and from 1998 to 2009 on the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit. In May 2009, President Barack Obama nominated her as an Associate Justice of the Supreme Court; she assumed this role on August 8, 2009.

Hope to see you there

    Not as long as I would have liked; but there was more than a thousand people there and she had at least 650+ books to sign1

    there is always standing room there---each speaker is different--I was there early for John Mackey and had the front row--but had to wait 1 1/2 for him--I suggest as early as your schedule allows--
