Books-A-Million to Welcome MVP Quarterback and Debut Author Nick Foles on June 30

June 26, 2018

SPRINGFIELD, Pa.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jun 26, 2018--Books-A-Million invites guests to a book signing event with Nick Foles, the unlikely franchise hero and quarterback who defied the odds, on Saturday, June 30. Beginning at 1 p.m., the event will feature Foles’ memoir “ Believe It: My Journey of Success, Failure, and Overcoming the Odds ” and will take place at Springfield Mall, located at 1250 Baltimore Pike in Springfield, Pennsylvania.

Foles’ just-released debut memoir “Believe It, ” published by Tyndale Momentum, recounts the astonishing story of an inspirational underdog who achieved Super Bowl glory. When the starting quarterback for the Eagles is injured, six-year veteran Nick Foles steps up to the plate to pick up a season that fans had already declared a loss. Despite the overwhelming odds, Foles leads the team to the first Super Bowl victory in franchise history – defeating the highly favored New England Patriots. In this powerful recollection, Foles delivers a behind-the-scenes look at the obstacles that threatened his career, the rediscovery of his love for the game and his faith through it all.

Readers follow as Foles relives his path and unexpected journey through the challenges that put him on the verge of retirement to the unlikely path that led to his team’s championship and the honor of being named Most Valuable Player of the Super Bowl. The memoir shares the incredible story of an underdog who silenced critics and shocked the world while always relying on his faith to keep him grounded and strength to achieve the impossible. Hoping to inspire others to defy the odds, Foles says, “Ever since the Super Bowl, people have been wanting to hear about how we got there and what it was like, which is a big part of the story, but I also want to be transparent about the struggles I’ve gone through in my life and my career. ”

To attend the event, guests must purchase an Eventbrite ticket in advance by visiting nickfoles.eventbrite.com. Each ticket will include an autographed first edition copy of his new book that will be distributed at the event. Photos allowed from the line only; there will be no posed photos.
