The New Yorker's Evan Osnos on Joe Biden's Journey

President-elect Joseph R. Biden has been in the public eye for nearly five decades, both a senator for Delaware and as vice president to Barack Obama, and his record and public statements are widely known. But what events, beliefs, and ideas shaped his worldview and compelled him to make a bid for the White House in 2020? The New Yorker‘s Evan Osnos joins the Council to discuss whether Joe Biden’s difficult but triumphant past prepared him for this pivotal election, and the challenges of holding the highest office.

Copies of Evan Osnos’ 2020 book Joe Biden: The Life, The Run, and What Matters Now are available to purchase through our local book partner, The Book Cellar.
