Sarah Palin, the Republican right's biggest draw and a possible White House candidate in 2012, will publish her second book in a year this November with a tome on "national and spiritual" values, HarperCollins announced.

The book to be titled "America by Heart: Reflections on Family, Faith, and Flag," is due to appear November 23, the publishers said.

Palin's first book, the colorful autobiography "Going Rogue," was a bestseller after publication in late 2009.

The former vice-presidential candidate and current cheerleader for the right wing Tea Party movement has become a prominent media personality since quitting her post as Alaskan governor last year.

She is employed by Fox television as a commentator and has been hired by Discovery Communications for an eight-part documentary on Alaska.

The upcoming book has been described by HarperCollins as a reflection on "the key values - both national and spiritual - that have been such a profound part of her life and which continue to inform her vision of the future."

"America by Heart" will include selections not from Palin herself, but "classic and contemporary readings that have moved her," the publishers said.

HarperCollins will not disclose how much Palin is being paid for the work.

"Going Rogue," which describes Palin's life in small town Alaska, her governorship and tumultuous entry into national politics during John McCain's failed presidential bid last year, was a huge success.

The book spent six weeks as a bestseller and sold more than 2.2 million copies.
