Lunch with Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor — at The Willard
Willard InterContinental and Politics & Prose Literary Series
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.
1 Signed Paperback and 1 Ticket for lunch in The Willard Room: $90 Additional Signed Paperback: $17

VB Reads...Motherhood By the Book
Calling all moms, whether you be mother or stepmother to an infant, toddler, tween, or adolescent, we have a new book group at the store just for us!
Motherhood by the Book is led by Claire, VB staffer, mother of a kindergartner, and stepmother of an adolescent. (And we don't mean board books or indestructibles--You know, the ones with the pages that you can chew.) No, we mean real, honest-to-goodness, grown-up books!
The book group meets on the second Sunday of every month at 2pm in the Book Fare Cafe for an hour of spirited discussion of books that celebrate the trials, tribulations, and rewards of motherhood, and what it means to be a mother. This group is by no means exclusive to moms with kids still at home, but much of the selection may be geared toward issues that those moms face. We will read fiction, non-fiction, and parenting books.
