Sonia Sotomayor: From The Bronx To The Bench, Trailblazing A Life On The Supreme Court

Aug 29, 2019

Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor is headed to Atlanta this weekend to talk about her new children’s book Just Ask! Be Different, Be Brave, Be You at Agnes Scott College as a part of the AJC Decatur Book Festival.

On this special edition of On Second Thought, we hear a rare, personal conversation with the justice recorded live for Writers on a New England Stage, a collaboration between New Hampshire Public Radio and The Music Hall in Portsmouth, New Hampshire.


Sotomayor sat down with Virginia Prescott back in 2014 to discuss her memoir My Beloved World. While cases were off limits, the conversation covered the storied journey from growing up in the housing projects in the South Bronx and Queens to sitting on the highest court in the land.

Get in touch with us.
