PHILADELPHIA - July 9, 2019 - PRLog -- New York Times bestselling humorist Andrew Shaffer has announced summer 2019 U.S. tour dates in support of Hope Rides Again: An Obama Biden Mystery, the much-anticipated sequel to the national bestselling political fan-fiction, Hope Never Dies.

Andrew Shaffer's "Hope Rides Again" speaking tour will visit bookstores and libraries in 28 cities through July and August. (A full list of dates is below--ticketed events are denoted with asterisks.) Shaffer will read selections from his new book, field reader questions, and discuss the current political climate--including presidential front-runner Joe Biden and the crowded Democratic field--with his trademark wit.

In the newly-released Hope Rides Again: An Obama Biden Mystery, President Obama and former vice president Joe Biden reprise their fictional roles as BFFs-turned-detectives (with an assist this time from Michelle Obama). The bromantic duo chases Obama's stolen Blackberry through the streets of Chicago…and right into a vast conspiracy.

The "Hope Rides Again" tour hits coastal markets such as New York City, Los Angeles, and Washington, D.C., as well as numerous cities in the heart of the country. "Unlike certain past presidential candidates, I will be visiting Wisconsin," says Shaffer.

Andrew Shaffer is the New York Times bestselling author of Hope Never Dies: An Obama Biden Mystery and the parody Fifty Shames of Earl Grey. He has appeared as a guest on NPR's All Things Considered and survived FOX News's FOX and Friends. Shaffer lives in Louisville, Kentucky, with his wife, novelist Tiffany Reisz.
