Later, she will address students and faculty at Metropolitan State University Of Denver. The university says she will share details of her life story during the sold-out event.

Her tour continues Friday with a fireside-chat style lecture at the University of Colorado Law School as part of its program to bring current and former justices to the Boulder campus.
