How does Jill Biden feel about her husband’s plans?

Jill Biden will probably face questions about her husband’s presidential aspirations when she speaks at the Marcus Jewish Community Center May 15.

The wife of the former vice president is back in the political spotlight with the news that her husband will announce his candidacy Thursday, April 25.

Does that sit well with Dr. Jill Biden (who has a doctorate in education)?

According to the Washington Post, Jill Biden never wanted to be a first lady, and described herself to NPR as “apolitical.”

In all likelihood she’ll direct her Atlanta audience’s attention to the issues she cares about the most -- cancer, health care, education and military families.

Those subjects are part of her new book, “Where the Light Enters: Building a Family, Discovering Myself,” which she will sign at the event.

But she will also, inevitably, address the “Biden 2020” signs she will see during her visit.

Biden appears as part of an ongoing series of events leading to the center’s book festival this fall.

Also appearing at the MJCCA in May and June are E.L. James, author of the “Fifty Shades of Grey” trilogy, food blogger Teri Turner and novelist Jennifer Weiner.

Jill Biden, educator and wife of presidential candidate Joe Biden, writes about her life in her new book, "Where the Light Enters."
