The US President Sets to Publish New Book – On the 16th of November, two weeks after Congressional mid-term elections, a new book entitled “Of Thee I Sing: A Letter to My Daughters”” written by the US President Barack Obama will be published.
According to publisher, the president was inspired by his daughters Sasha and Malia to write the book, which is “a moving tribute to thirteen groundbreaking Americans and the ideals that have shaped our nation-from the artistry of Georgia O’Keefe, to the courage of Jackie Robinson, to the patriotism of George Washington.” The book is going to published by Alfred A. Knopf.
The book was written before the President’s Obama inauguration last January 2009, according to Random House.
Mr. Obama has already published two books under Random House publication which have become best-sellers. First was the autobiographical “Dreams of My Father”, published in 1995 and “The Audacity of Hope”, a 2006 work describing Obama’s political positions.
Proceeds from the book are to go to a scholarship fund for the children of American soldiers killed and disabled in wars.
