The response to this year’s Everybody Reads program was nothing short of extraordinary. Not only was Justice Sotomayor’s March 11 lecture at the Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall full to capacity, but there were over 900 students from Portland-area high schools in the audience who heard Sotomayor’s inspirational message. Across the Park Blocks, another 1,000 people gathered to hear a live simulcast of the presentation at the Portland Art Museum.
As part of the evening, OPB produced a video of inspiring stories from Oregonians following their dreams and passions, which premiered before the sold-out lecture. We encourage you to take a look and share it! Click here to watch the video.
If you missed the lecture or simulcast, tune into OPB Radio on Sunday, May 11 at 9:00pm to hear a broadcast of the Justice’s talk. For a few photos of the event, be sure to check out our Facebook page.
Thank you especially to our sponsors who helped make the event a success: The Paul G. Allen Family Foundation, AHA!, Lewis & Clark College, Miller Nash, Multnomah County Library, The Library Foundation, The Oregonian, OPB, Portland Art Museum, and The Standard.
