Joe Biden’s book tour hits Portland in January

Biden, a Democrat from Delaware and the vice president under President Barack Obama, is among those widely rumored to be considering a run for the presidency in 2020. Biden also served in the U.S. Senate from 1973 to 2009.

The stop in Portland will feature a moderated forum to discuss Biden’s book, “Promise me, Dad” an accounting of his family’s experience as his son Beau Biden fought against terminal cancer before dying in May of 2015.

“Biden will reveal the big political moments of his career, the life-altering choices he made, and the key traits that have helped him persevere through challenges,” an announcement for the book tour on Facebook states. “He will share how the loss of his son Beau tested his resolve, and how he is finding new purpose in a time of uncertainty.” Ticketing information for the Portland appearance has not been announced.

Biden was in Maine in May to speak at the Colby College graduation. He addresses nearly 500 graduates on the Waterville campus, emphasizing the importance of respect, dignity and humanity.
