Valerie Biden Owens, the president's sister, has a book deal

President Joe Biden’s sister, confidante and longtime political strategist, Valerie Biden Owens, has a book deal

Celadon Books told The Associated Press on Thursday that Owens' “Growing Up Biden” will come out April 12 of next year. She is expected to cover everything from her childhood as the only girl among four siblings to her “trailblazing, decades-long professional relationship” with Biden, who has referred to Owens as his best friend. Vogue magazine last year dubbed her “The Joe Biden Whisperer.”

Celadon Books is a division of Macmillan Publishers, which 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.”
