兰登书屋本周二宣布,美国总统贝拉克•奥巴马将出版一本受两个女儿启发撰写的儿童图画书,并在其中向13名杰出美国人致敬。
President Barack Obama will release a children's picture book, inspired by his two daughters, that pays tribute to 13 influential Americans, publisher Random House said on Tuesday.
这本名为《赞美你:致我女儿们的一封信》的读物是奥巴马总统2009年1月就职前所写,定于11月16日,恰逢国会中期选举两周后上架。插图由获奖画家洛伦•朗绘制。
Called "Of Thee I Sing: A Letter to My Daughters," the book was written by Obama before he took office in January, 2009 and will be released on November 16, two week after the mid-term elections. It is illustrated by award-winning author Loren Long.
据出版商介绍,这本书将讲述塑造了美国的“先驱人物和理想精神”,包括开国总统乔治•华盛顿、职业棒球联盟的第一位黑人运动员杰基•鲁宾逊、以及艺术家乔治亚•奥基夫。但他拒绝透露其余十个人物。
The book will address "groundbreaking Americans and the ideals that have shaped" the United States including former US President George Washington, the first black Major League Baseball player Jackie Robinson and artist Georgia O'Keeffe, the publisher said. The ten other subjects were not revealed.
奥巴马已出版了《我父亲的梦想》和《无畏的希望》两本畅销书。出版商透露,是女儿们启发了奥巴马写这本书的灵感。奥巴马有给两个女儿,12岁的玛利亚和9岁的萨莎。
Obama, who has written two bestselling books, "Dreams from My Father," and "The Audacity of Hope," was inspired to do the book through his experience as the father of two daughters, Malia, 12 and Sasha, 9, the publisher said.
奥巴马于2004年和兰登书屋签下了三本书的出版合约,总价达190万美元,这本书是其中之一。
It is part of a three-book $1.9 million deal Obama agreed with Random House in 2004.
该书首次印刷50万册,收益将捐给为美国牺牲和受伤致残军人所设立的奖学基金。出版商为兰登书屋旗下的阿尔弗雷德•A•克诺夫青少年读物出版社。兰登书屋目前为德国贝塔斯曼集团所有。
The book will have a 500,000 first print run and proceeds will be donated to a scholarship fund for fallen and disabled U.S. soldiers. It will be published by Alfred A. Knopf Books for Young Readers, a division of Random House, which is owned by Germany's Bertelsmann AG.
