Book Signing Postponed: Time TBA
While her son's team prepares to defend their lead atop the NFC North standings this Sunday in Houston, BONITA FAVRE is defending her publishing position in the books game despite a nasty bacterial infection that has landed her in a Madison, Wisconsin emergency room.
After a slew of record breaking personal appearances and signings (not to mention a spot at 16 on the New York Times Best seller list), Mrs. Favre came down with the illness, possibly from contact with harmful food bacteria.
Mrs. Favre is resting comfortably and preparing for her return to book signing action for the holiday season rush. "It's like getting ready for the playoffs," said Mrs. Favre.
Brett Favre jokingly expressed concern about his mother. "My mom's a little hard-headed and I told her, 'You're not a spring chicken any more.' She said, 'You sound like I sounded some years back, talking to you.' I said, 'Well, if that's the case, then you won't listen to me like I didn't listen to you, so we're even.' But I think she's enjoying it."
Co-published by the National Football League and Rugged Land LLC, "FAVRE", will appear on the New York Times Hardcover Nonfiction Best-Seller List (ranked No. 16) to be published on November 28.
Favre, who has led the Packers into first place in the NFC North with nine touchdown passes during the team's four-game winning streak, wrote the autobiography with his mother BONITA and Green Bay Press-Gazette columnist CHRIS HAVEL.
The book features contributions from Pro Football Hall of Fame quarterback TERRY BRADSHAW, best-selling author MARK BOWDEN, and PETER KING of Sports Illustrated. "FAVRE" is filled with more than 150 stunning four-color action shots, personal memorabilia, and all the stories of Brett's fall Sundays.
In addition, a DVD from Emmy Award-winning NFL Films is included with the book. Entitled "In Their Own Words: Brett Favre" the DVD reveals Favre's intensity, humor, competitiveness and humanity using rare interviews, archival action footage and exclusive sound captured on the field, on the sidelines and in the locker room. It's the perfect film to watch before kickoff.
