Vintage announced in a press release this morning that Barack Obama‘s bestseller THE AUDACITY OF HOPE (published by Crown) will be translated into Spanish and published by Vintage Espanol on June 19. On matters relating to Latinos, he recalls how the black and Latino communities were intertwined in his early political career: “As a young organizer, I often worked with Latino leaders on issues that affected both black and brown residents, from failing schools to illegal dumping to unimmunized children. I made lifelong friends and allies in those neighborhoods; in my mind, at least, the fates of black and brown were to be perpetually intertwined, the cornerstone of a coalition that could help America live up to its promise.”
The translation will be handled by veteran non-fiction translators Claudia Casanova and Juan Elroy Roca of Spain.
