About Vice President Joe Biden: American Promise Tour

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.

“Over the last month I’ve traveled around the country to share the story of my son Beau. I have been incredibly touched by countless stories of resilience and hope that so many people have shared with me - stories of enormous loss, and yet, in defiance of that loss, they get up every morning and summon the strength to live a life of purpose. 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, Jonathan Capehart, Stephen Colbert, Melinda Gates, Dr. Atul Gawande, John Green, Amanda Lang, Kim Malek, Jon Meacham, Wes Moore, Leslie Odom, Jr., Al Roker, George Saunders, Aaron Sorkin, Elaine Welteroth, Constance Wu, and Dr. Alfred Yung. 

Vice President Biden is represented by Creative Artists Agency (CAA), which developed and will continue to oversee the American Promise Tour.
