MVP in HBG: Nick Foles slated to sign books at Midtown Scholar.

Local Philadelphia Eagles fans may have thought that it got no better than this year’s Super Bowl win.

But it may have just gotten better.

Quarterback Nick Foles is slated to visit Harrisburg’s Midtown Scholar Bookstore late next month to sign copies of his book, “Believe It: My Journey of Success, Failure and Overcoming the Odds.”

According to the book jacket, “Believe It” chronicles Foles’ unlikely journey from second-string quarterback to Super Bowl MVP, “and the faith that grounded him through it all.”

“We couldn’t be more thrilled to welcome Nick Foles to Harrisburg,” said Alex Brubaker, Midtown Scholar’s manager. “There’s tons of Eagles fans throughout central Pennsylvania that often don’t get the opportunity to meet players or go to games. Once we heard Nick Foles was coming out with a memoir, we knew we had to get him to Harrisburg.”

Foles’ appearance will be a ticketed event. The cost of the ticket, plus one copy of the book, is $30.

“Foles will go down in franchise history as the first-ever quarterback to bring home a championship to Philly–and to do it over Tom Brady and the Patriots? That’s special,” Brubaker said. “He’ll always hold an iconic place in the memories of Eagles fans for what he was able to accomplish during that playoff run. As a long-time Eagles fan, I’m kind of freaking out. It’s going to be a really cool experience.”

Nick Foles will appear on Friday, June 29, at Midtown Scholar Bookstore, 1302 N. 3rd St., Harrisburg. Doors open at 2:15 p.m. The book-signing begins at 2:30 p.m. and will run until 4:30 p.m. For more information and tickets, click here.
