Justice Sonia Sotomayor speaks in Portland


She's celebrating a new book

PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — US Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor was in Portland on Saturday.

She spoke to a crowd at Portland Community College about her new children’s book “Just Ask! Be Different, Be Brave, Be You.”

The book encourages children to celebrate their differences in ways that make them special. She told the audience she drew on her own experience as a child growing up with diabetes and often feeling ashamed of her diagnoses.

Tickets to the event were free. The talk included a discussion, a Q&A and a book signing.
