Biden to write book about grieving son's death

Former Vice President Joe Biden announced on Monday that he will embark on a speaking tour across the country later this year as he promotes his new book-sparking renewed cries for him to challenge President Donald Trump in the 2020 presidential election.

The tour runs from November 13 through December 14, with stops in New York City, Boston, Nantucket, Philadelphia, Denver, Seattle, Chicago and more. Two days before the book is released, an interview with Oprah Winfrey will air on Winfrey's OWN network. The book chronicles Biden's 2015, as his son Beau was battling brain cancer while the vice president had to decide whether to enter the 2016 presidential race.

Beau reportedly told his father: 'Promise me, Dad. Doors for the event are at 7 p.m. and the show starts at 8 p.m. In a tweet, Biden called the speaking tour "a series of conversations" with a tagline on a promotional image touting the tour as a way of "finding goal in a time of uncertainty".

Vice President Biden says, "I have always been fortunate to have an incredible support system around me, and I understand how many people in this country go through far worse than I have, with far less support".

"The answer is that I had planned on running for president, and although it would've been a hard primary, I think I could've won", Biden said in March, during a Q-and-A interview at Colgate University.

Along with a slate of 600-plus novelists, poets and journalists appearing at the literary festival, marquee authors will include former vice president Joe Biden, author and 2014 Presidential Medal of Freedom victor Isabel Allende, Obama White House photographer Pete Souza and Miami-raised Obama inauguration poet Richard Blanco.
