  • Biden to write book about grieving son's death

A Year of Hope, Hardship, and objective, ' will be released by Flatiron Books on November 14, with the title coming from an emotional conversation the Vice President had with his son during their final Thanksgiving together.

Biden will be making a stop while on his American Promise Tour, where he discusses his career as a politician and the traits that have kept him from persevering through challenges.

The announcement of his speaking tour coincided with the release of an op-ed the former vice president wrote in the Washington Post assailing the Republican-led effort to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act.

Check back to SouthFlorida.com as we announce the full lineup over the coming months.

The book will detail Biden's struggle to perform his governmental duties while mourning the loss of his son, Beau, to brain cancer.

Tickets for the event are $59.50, $75, $99.50 and $125 and go on sale via Ticketmaster at 10 a.m. Friday July 28.

Pre-sales begin at 10 a.m. Tuesday, July 18. Broadcast journalist Dan Rather, meanwhile, will kick off the festival's "Evenings With" series on November 12, and will discuss his new book "What Unites Us", a collection of Facebook essays on patriotism and the candidacy and presidency of Donald Trump. The weekend street fair, which manages to pack downtown Miami with more literature than a public library, will return 10 a.m. -6 p.m. November 18-20.

Biden will be in town for his American Promise Tour, during which he'll talk about his memoir "Promise Me, Dad: A Year of Hope, Hardship, and Purpose" (Flatiron, $27). Never far away was the insistent question of whether he should seek the presidency in 2016.
