Dr. Jill Biden to read from new book Nov. 16 at Dover Public Library
Dr. Jill Biden, the wife of Vice President Joe Biden, will read from her new book, "Don’t Forget, God Bless Our Troops," during the story time program at 10:15 a.m. Friday, Nov. 16, at the Dover Public Library.
Biden’s appearance at the Dover library is part of a series of readings from the book this fall at story hours throughout the state as Delaware Libraries presents programs to recognize the contributions of the men and women in the nation’s military service. Copies of "Don’t Forget, God Bless Our Troops" will be available for purchase at the Dover library, and Biden will autograph copies.
The book is an account of the real-life experiences of Biden’s granddaughter Natalie while Natalie’s father, Delaware Attorney General Beau Biden, served in Iraq with his Delaware National Guard unit.
Biden wrote the book to help children overcome feelings of loneliness when a parent is absent and to help nonmilitary families better understand the experience of having loved ones serving overseas during wartime. The book includes resources about what readers can do to support military service members and their families.
