My Beloved World

The program is described on the Common Read Blackboard site:

"Queensborough faculty members and their students will read My Beloved World in classes in the Spring 2018 semester.  All students will participate in co-curricular activities.

The coming fall marks the centennial celebration of women having the right to vote in New York State.  To commemorate this anniversary, the College recently announced a theme for the coming academic year of female empowerment and gender equality.  This announcement was coupled with a request to align events and activities throughout the coming academic year with this theme.

For the coming year, the committee has selected My Beloved World by Sonia Sotomayor, the first Hispanic Justice and third woman to serve on the U.S. Supreme Court.  You can read more about this text at Penguin Random House.  (see below)

For additional information regarding this initiative please contact Dr. Robin Ford, Assistant Professor, English, and Coordinator of the Common Read, at, or Dr. Henry Davis, Academic Program Specialist at"
