Join Valerie Biden Owens on Tour for Her Memoir Growing Up Biden

Join Valerie Biden Owens for events across the U.S., as she discusses her new memoir, Growing Up Biden, with a selection of fascinating conversation partners. Each ticket includes admission to the event and a signed copy of her book.

About Growing Up Biden

In this revelatory, engrossing memoir, Valerie Biden Owens shares stories from growing up in Delaware as the only daughter of the close-knit Biden family. She details her decades-long professional career in politics, and her fundamental presence in her brother, Joe Biden’s life as a close confidante. This memoir, full of candor and warmth, brings readers into the Biden home, watching as the siblings were raised to live with deep empathy, to work hard, and to help wherever they can.

As one of the first women in United States history to manage a modern U.S. Senatorial campaign, Valerie is arguably the most politically influential woman we do not talk about. From President Biden's first election for New Castle County Council in 1970, to his recent White House Victory, his sister Valerie has been by his side as confidant and campaign manager. Her memoir offers an inside look at the circumstances and values that shaped America's First Family.
