Green Bay Packers Chairman/CEO Bob Harlan will sign copies of his autobiography, Green and Golden Moments: Bob Harlan and the Green Bay Packers, at the Packers Pro Shop Thursday, May 10, from 4 to 6 p.m., and Saturday, May 12, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Now through Saturday, the book is available exclusively at the Packers Pro Shop, as well as online at www.packersproshop.com.
In his autobiography, Harlan invites Packers fans to reminisce with him about the highs and lows of a career spent in sports. Harlan, who will retire at the end of the month, shares his stories and offers a behind-the-scenes look at one of the greatest franchises in professional sports: the Green Bay Packers.
In the 18 years that Harlan was in charge, the Packers went to the playoffs 10 times, played in two Super Bowls, won one of them and lived through only three losing seasons an incredible feat in the era of salary caps and free agency. Perhaps Harlan's greatest moment as chief executive came in 2000 when he was widely recognized as the driving force behind the passing of a local referendum allowing for the renovation of historic Lambeau Field. This is the story of how a kid from Iowa who wanted to be a sportswriter built a career, in his own low key, unassuming way, as one of the most effective executives in any game in America.
