As part of the book deal then-Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., inked in 2004, Random House today announced the publication of a children’s book by the president, “Of Thee I Sing: A Letter to My Daughters.”

The book will be released on November 16 – roughly two weeks after the midterm elections -- with a 500,000-copy first printing.

“Of Thee I Sing,” which President Obama finished writing in 2008, describes thirteen “groundbreaking Americans and the ideals that have shaped our nation—from the artistry of Georgia O’Keeffe, to the courage of Jackie Robinson, to the patriotism of George Washington,” the publisher said in a statement. It is illustrated by Loren Long.

Proceeds from the sale of the book, Random House announced,
will be donated to a scholarship fund for the children of fallen
and disabled US troops.

The book will be published by Alfred A. Knopf Books for Young Readers and is part of the three-book, $1.9 million deal that
then-Sen. Obama reached with Random House through his
powerful attorney Bob Barnett.
