Sonia Sotomayor to Publish Memoir with Knopf

Knopf Doubleday Publishing Group EIC Sonny Mehta acquired the memoir. “Hers is a triumph of the Latino experience in America,” the editor said in a statement. Literary agent and editor Peter W. Bernstein negotiated the deal. We hope the justice writes about Nancy Drew

Here’s more from the release: “Sotomayor will write about growing up in the South Bronx; her relationship with her mother and the loss of her father when she was nine years old; her inspiration as a young girl to become a lawyer; her journey to Princeton University (on a full scholarship) and later to Yale Law School; and finally, to a life in the law, culminating with her appointment to the federal bench.”
