The Washington D.C. Public Library system will shortly carry a book written by Tara Reade, in which she describes Joe Biden’s alleged maltreatment of her as a senator.
In March of 2021, Reade’s book, “Left Out: When the Truth Doesn’t Fit In,” was published.
According to the book’s Amazon description, “Reade shares the aftermath of the re-victimization of speaking out about her sexual assault, with then-Senator Joe Biden in 1993, where the shaming, attacks, and threats instigated by the media sent her into a personal tailspin.”
“Tara-rized viciously by cyber bullies, receiving death threats and fearing for her life and those of her family, Tara tells how living with no regret and coming forward was right for her conscience,” the description reads.
The article went on to describe how Reade “pull[ed] together the pieces of her life experiences” in order to encourage other survivors of abuse to come forward with their stories, noting the importance of “speaking truth to power even in the most difficult of circumstances.”
This book will shortly be available in the public library system of Washington, D.C.
I wrote a book…✨

This occurred after a College Fix editor reportedly requested the book in September 2022.
“I was asked to respond to your inquiry about Tara Reade’s book,” a D.C. Public Library staffer reportedly told Matt Lamb, an Associate Editor at The Fix. “I was able to find it listed in one of our vendor’s ordering databases, so [I] have placed an order for this title.”
As reported by The Fix, President Biden and his wife, Jill, have repeatedly condemned the barring of books. Their comments were likely directed at Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, who has targeted “pornographic” and other “garbage” books in schools.
