More Eagles Please: Team reporters to visit Harrisburg, sign books this weekend

Were you one of the hundreds of people who stood in the long line last June to meet Eagles quarterback Nick Foles?

Now you can live last year’s Super Bowl excitement once again as two Eagles reporters visit Harrisburg to talk about the team and the season and to sign some books.

On Saturday, beat reporter Zach Berman and sideline reporter Molly Sullivan will venture to Midtown Scholar Bookstore to discuss Berman’s new book, “Underdogs: The Philadelphia Eagles’ Emotional Road to Super Bowl Victory.”

“With the Eagles still fresh off their Super Bowl victory, we’re excited for Harrisburg to get the behind-the-scenes story from two of the best reporters in the business,” said Alex Brubaker, Midtown Scholar’s manager. “Our event with Nick Foles proved there’s a huge swath of central Pennsylvania that bleeds Eagles green — and doesn’t often get to experience events with Eagles players or reporters.”

Berman has covered the Eagles for the Philadelphia Enquirer for six years, while Sullivan works for the Eagles as a host and reporter.

The book takes fans on a journey through the season, which included the crushing injury to starting quarterback Carson Wentz and the unlikely rise of Foles. The season culminated in the underdog Eagles defeating the New England Patriots to win their first Super Bowl title.

In addition to the book signing, Berman and Sullivan will engage with attendees and hold a question-and-answer session, said Brubaker.

“Zach and Molly are such accomplished reporters, so we’re really ecstatic to promote Zach’s book to our community of sports fans,” Brubaker said.

Zach Berman and Molly Sullivan will speak and sign books on Saturday, Nov. 3, starting at 10 a.m., at Midtown Scholar Bookstore, 1302 N. 3rd St., Harrisburg. The event is free and open to the public.
