Book cover of My Beloved World

Book Discussion:
My Beloved World by Sonia Sotomayor

Summary: "An instant American icon--the first Hispanic on the U.S. Supreme Court--tells the story of her life before becoming a judge in an inspiring, surprisingly personal memoir. With startling candor and intimacy, Sonia Sotomayor recounts her life from a Bronx housing project to the federal bench, a progress that is testament to her extraordinary determination and the power of believing in oneself. She writes of her precarious childhood and the refuge she took with her passionately spirited paternal grandmother. She describes her resolve as a young girl to become a lawyer, and how she made this dream become reality: valedictorian of her high school class, summa cum laude at Princeton, Yale Law, prosecutor in the Manhattan D.A.'s office, private practice, federal district judge before the age of forty. She writes about her deeply valued mentors, about her failed marriage, about her cherished family of friends. Through her still-astonished eyes, America's infinite possibilities are envisioned anew in this ... book"-- Provided by publisher.

When Ford unveiled the Mustang at the 1964 New York Worlds Fair on April 17, 1964, America fell in love with it.  But many felt there was something lacking: a precision and high performance engine.  Carroll Shelby, who had a company devoted to upgrading standard models into high performance racing cars, took on that task, and unveiled his version in 1965.  Join us as Stephen Tapper, of the Mustang Club of Maryland, discusses the history of the Shelby Mustang.  Following Mr. Tapper’s presentation will be a Mustang Rally in the library’s parking lot.

Here's What You Need to Know to Self-Publish Your Book Over the Summer Wednesday, May 6, 2015 - 7:00pm

In recent years, self-publishing has become a trend allowing regular citizens to publish their stories without having to go through the gatekeepers of traditional publishing. Seeing this popularity, the Prince George's County Memorial Library System is hosting a FREE seminar featuring two local authors to help the community learn more about the self-publishing process. Authors RJ Crayton and JM Brown will use the 90-minute seminar to explain what to expect from self-publishing, how best to do it, and how best to avoid scams. This seminar comes just in time to kick off summer, a wonderful time of year for writers to squirrel away some time to turn their self-publishing dreams into a reality.
