Justice Sonia Sotomayor to speak in Chicago

CHICAGO (AP) — Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor is to speak in Chicago about her new memoir.

Sotomayor is scheduled to give remarks at the Chicago Public Library's Harold Washington Library Center in downtown Chicago on Wednesday night. Her memoir is called "My Beloved World." The book was released Jan. 16. In the book she discusses having diabetes, her decision not to have children and her feelings about affirmative action.

Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel plans to attend. Sotomayor is on a book tour of about a dozen American cities.

Sotomayor is the first Hispanic justice on the U.S. Supreme Court. President Barack Obama nominated her in May 2009 and the 58-year-old took the position in August 2009.
