Portrait Of: Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor

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 at 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. 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.
