“I’m grateful to have the opportunity to continue this tour and hear from so many more people,” says Vice President Biden.
During his American Promise Tour events, Vice President Biden has discussed the big political moments of his career, the life-altering choices he made, and the key traits that have helped him persevere through challenges. Guest moderators have included inspiring figures from the worlds of politics, entertainment, news, philanthropy, medicine, and literature, including: Tom Brokaw, Jenna Bush Hager, Stephen Colbert, Melinda Gates, Dr. Atul Gawande, John Green, Jon Meacham, Wes Moore, Leslie Odom, Jr., Ambassador Samantha Power, Al Roker, George Saunders, Aaron Sorkin, Jesmyn Ward, Elaine Welteroth, and Constance Wu.
In November 2017, Flatiron Books published Vice President Biden’s #1 New York Times bestselling memoir, PROMISE ME, DAD: A Year of Hope, Hardship, and Purpose (on sale now). PROMISE ME, DAD chronicles 2015, the most momentous and challenging year in Vice President Biden’s extraordinary life and career. For twelve months, the vice president balanced the twin imperatives of living up to his responsibilities to his country and his family while his son Beau battled brain cancer. Never far away was the insistent question of whether he should seek the presidency in 2016. 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.
