Joe Biden memoir coming out November 14

Biden to write book about grieving son's death

This fall, Vice President Joe Biden will travel the nation for his American Promise Tour, a series of conversations that will go beyond the 24-hour news cycle and 140-character arguments to connect friends and neighbors around the topics that matter most.

The former VP will also be promoting the book as part of his American Promise, with his first date set for November 13 at New York's Lincoln Center. Doors for the event are at 7 p.m. and the show starts at 8 p.m.

The book is set to come out on November 14. This year the fair kicks off with journalist Dan Rather, who will talk about his new book with Elliot Kirshner, "What Unites Us: Reflections on Patriotism" (Algonquin, $22.95).

Tickets for the appearance go on sale at 10 a.m. on Friday, July 28, though Proctors members and subscribers will have access to a pre-sale beginning Tuesday at 10 a.m.

At last year's Miami Book Fair, the impossible ticket to get was the one that got you in to see 2016 presidential hopeful Sen.

Biden's book, titled "Promise Me, Dad: A Year of Hope, Hardship, and objective", chronicles the year in which his son, Beau, battled brain cancer while Biden weighed whether or not to run for president in the 2016 election.

In the months since the election, Biden has also said he believes he could have won the race for the presidency had he made a decision to throw his hat in the ring.

His book chronicles 2015, which Biden considers the most momentous and challenging year in his life and career.

The book will detail Biden's struggle to perform his governmental duties while mourning the loss of his son, Beau, to brain cancer. Writing with poignancy and immediacy, Vice President Biden allows readers to feel the urgency of each moment, to experience the days when he felt unable to move forward, as well as the days when he felt like he could not afford to stop.
