“Growing Up Biden” is set to be published by Celadon Books on April 12, the Associated Press reported.
According to the AP, Washington, D.C.-based literary agency Javelin represented Owens. The AP noted that Javelin has worked with other big names, including former House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) and former FBI Director James Comey.
According to an Amazon pre-order page, the memoir will include her memories of growing up in Delaware, helping raise Biden’s sons after his first wife and his daughter were killed in a car crash and her role in his political campaigns.
Biden’s sister managed her brother’s 1972 US Senate run in Delaware and his unsuccessful presidential campaigns in 1988 and 2008.
She was a top adviser to his recent presidential run.
The 75-year-old Owens has been working with her older brother for virtually his entire career, dating back to high school in Delaware. She managed his winning 1972 run for the U.S. Senate and his unsuccessful presidential attempts in 1988 and 2008 and was a top advisor for his election to the White House in 2020. She also has been closely involved with his own family, quitting her job as a teacher and moving in with him for four years so she could care for his two sons after he lost his first wife and 13-month old daughter in a 1972 car accident.
Financial terms were undisclosed, the report noted. Owens was represented by Javelin, the Washington, D.C.-based literary agency where other clients have included former FBI Director James Comey, former National Security Adviser John Bolton and former House Speaker John Boehner.
Celadon Books in 2017 released Joe Biden’s “Promise Me, Dad,” about his son Beau Biden, who died of brain cancer in 2015.
“Our family’s story is a very American one — full of joy but also shadowed by tragedy,” Owens said in a statement.
“What we Bidens learned long ago is a timeless lesson: that family matters, possibility can emerge from pain, and the ties that bind us together are stronger than anything that might pull us apart. So this will be a story of one family — but our story, I hope, will resonate and inspire,” she said.
