Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor has written a children's book about understanding differences. CONTRIBUTED: AJC DECATUR BOOK FESTIVAL

When she was a child Sotomayor was diagnosed with juvenile diabetes, and was required to give herself insulin injections each day. Her condition made her feel different from other children, but she learned that differences can be strengths.

In her book, illustrated by Rafael López, she encourages readers to “just ask” when they encounter someone who seems different.

 Those wishing to enter the book signing line after the event must have a copy of “Just Ask!” or the Spanish edition, "¡Solo pregunta!" Books will be available for purchase that day or can be pre-ordered at Little Shop of Stories.

Tickets to AJC Decatur Book Festival events are for general admission seating, and demand usually exceeds supply. Festival organizers recommend ordering tickets early.
