Second Palin book due in November

[cnn-photo-caption image= caption="Sarah Palin's second book will be titled 'America By Heart: Reflections on Family, Faith, and Flag.'"]
(CNN) – Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin will release her second book in November, publisher Harper Collins announced Wednesday.

"America By Heart: Reflections on Family, Faith, and Flag " will include selections from classic and contemporary readings that have moved her-from the nation's founding documents to great speeches, sermons, letters, literature and poetry, biography, and even some of her favorite songs and movies," the publisher said in a statement announcing the new book. "The book will also include portraits of some of the extraordinary men and women she admires and who embody her deep love of country, her strong rootedness in faith, and her profound love and appreciation of family. She will also draw from personal experience to amplify these timely (and timeless) themes-themes that are sure to inspire her numerous supporters and all readers across the country."

The second book was inspired by the people Palin met during her 35-city tour in support of her first book, "Going Rogue," Harper Collins also said. The upcoming book "celebrates the enduring strengths and virtues that have made this country great," the publisher added.

"America By Heart" will hit bookshelves on November 23, according to Harper Collins.

Palin has become one of the GOP's biggest stars since being tapped as Sen. John McCain's running mate during the 2008 presidential race. In addition to being an author, the former Alaska governor has become a sought after speaker and a contributor on Fox News. Given her popularity with the GOP's conservative base and with the Tea Party movement, Palin's political future remains the subject of speculation - with many political observers wondering whether her books, speeches, and television appearances are a precursor to a White House bid.

    Man did this woman cash in! Quit her job as a Gov'r even to do so! We are VERY lucky she is not our VP. McCain should be ashamed of himself for what he tried to do to this Nation. How can someone fall so far so fast?

    In preparation for her 2012 run, her cronies will publish a whole book about what Palin has read. So when Katie Couric asks what do you read she can easily reply "just read my book, you betcha".

    Well thank God for that. The news outlets will have something to talk about for another month or two. I am, however, a bit concerned that FOX may explode with excitement.

    More verbal vomit from Ellie May Palin. Who is writing this one for her? But of course, she'll be there to collect the paycheck.

    I certainly won't be wasting my time on it.

    She is a great person who loves her country and family. It is clear that every Democrat who wishes her and her family harm is just envious that they will never be able to much less even comprehend the kind of morals, values, decency, and integrity that Sarah has, since they are completely morally bankrupt.

    It is getting to the point where the hate-filled lib attack on Sarah are coming close to the Clarence Thomas level. Difference is the Thomas racist attacks were a warning to all African Americans that having conservative views will not be tolerated and severe racist punish will be the result.

    one question, who's writing about the founding fathers since she can't even name one?

    Why, oh why, must we endure more of Sarah trying to write? Are we in purgatory or hell?

    why would anyone care to know more about her dysfunctional family?

    i guess white trash is intrigued by 'famous' white trash....they're all hoping to be one of the Palins, Kardashians, Gosselins, or maybe even an American Idol....

    she should give up on any career that requires intelligence and call Hustler....

    Yay! More garbage that will give the GOP a bad name and make it a little harder for them to be taken seriously! And Yay! another way for Palin to make boatloads of money for doing nothing but stirring up trouble. Yay!

    I hoope the comments on this are positive as Palin is doing the American thing, making a profit through capitalism, keeping employed those who are involved in the production, promotion a d sales of her book. My worry is that many will use this to attack thereby showing their sociolistic Obama supporting ways.

    She has still written fewer books in the amount of time that she has been in politics than Obamessiah has in his political tenure. Neither of them have enough political experiance added together to confidently write anything signifigant.

    This lady is so full of it. Who is writing this book for her?

    Maybe her book will be ok. Maybe it will be a book written to inspire Americans to be better people. Maybe it will have some redeeming qualities. Maybe palin will keep politics out of it. Maybe she'll avoid telling other people how to live their lives. Oh, look over there...a flying pig.

    This woman will continue to take all the $$$ she can until people smarten up...........She is such a money grabbing machine and the people that adore her seem too dumb to realize what she is doing.......Probably trying to get enough $$$ so she and Todd can secede from the country as Todd wanted Alaska to do when the quitter was Gov.

    How come that Sarah is popular with GOP Conservatives, Tea Party movement,
    GOP biggest star and yet her political future remains the subject of speculation. Is this not in other words:

    Here in Canada we had a similar woman who tried to start a career in journalism/politics: Margaret Trudeau. She was married to then prime minister Pierre Trudeau but let's just say that Pierre didn't marry his intellectual equal and leave it at that. You may remember her running around with the Rolling Stones in New York in the mid-seventies...

    When she wrote a book, the joke in Canada went like this: "Margaret Trudeau, the only woman in Canada who's written more books than she's read"

    Getting back to this idiot Palin, imagine being dumb enough to read whatever the GOP is marketing under the silly clown's name now...
