Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor was an avid reader, especially as a young child growing up in the Bronx. So, it’s no surprise that she published two books aimed younger audiences.

The first is a story for young adults titled The Beloved World of Sonia Sotomayor. The second is a children’s illustrated book called Turning Pages: My Life Story. Both books are an adaption of her 2013 memoir, My Beloved World, a New York Times bestseller.

Justice Sotomayor joins Maria Hinojosa to discuss why she wrote books for a younger audience and how the events of her youth and young adult life shaped her view of the world.
