One Book 2019

One Book 2019

This is a special day for the area One Book One Community project as well as the author who wrote the selected book. It is her birthday – Justice Sonia Sotomayor --- and the day the 2019 One Book is announced --- My Beloved World.

This is the 17th consecutive year Winchester and Frederick and Clarke counties have read the same book during the same time period to promote reading as a meaningful part of everyday life while uniting the community around a common activity and discussion of important issues.

The author was born on June 25, 1954, in the Bronx borough of New York City. She became the first Latina Supreme Court Justice on May 26, 2009.

Her memoir met the criteria for selection by the committee – has widespread appeal, is available in paperback and Spanish, and is currently in print.

Events will be held this fall and will be announced in July.
