The Williard Intercontinental Hotel
1401 Pennsylvania Ave, Washington, D.C.
The first Hispanic and third woman appointed to the United States Supreme Court, Sonia Sotomayor has become an instant American icon. With a candor and intimacy never before undertaken by a sitting Justice, My Beloved World(Knopf) recounts her life from a Bronx housing project to the federal bench. Her extraordinary determination, intelligence and buoyant humor are evident on every page.
The Willard InterContinental celebrates its literary roots partnering with famed Washington DC independent bookstore, Politics & Prose on a series of teas and luncheons with notable authors and thinkers. The Series is a nod to the Willard’s literary history as the home away from home for such legendary writers as Walt Whitman, Nathaniel Hawthorne, Mark Twain, Charles Dickens, Emily Dickinson and Julia Ward Howe. The Series is curated by Politics & Prose, DC’s premiere independent bookstore celebrating thirty years in 2014.
