Obama book to go from 'Hope' to 'Esperanza'

WASHINGTON (CNN) – Sen. Barack Obama will be the next 2008 presidential hopeful to release a Spanish-language version of their best-selling book, his publisher announced Thursday.

"The Audacity of Hope," the Illinois Democrat's second book, will be translated into Spanish and released in U.S. bookstores in June as "La Audacia de la Esperanza", according to a statement by the book's publisher, Vintage Espanol, a division of Random House.

Other books written by 2008 presidential candidates that have been released in Spanish include Sen. Hillary Clinton's "Historia Viva" (Living History) and "Liderazgo" (Leadership) by former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani.

Hispanics, the nation's fastest-growing minority group, made up eight percent of voters in the last presidential election.
