Bonita Favre, mother of Packers quarterback Brett Favre, on June 3 will make a return visit to the Packers Pro Shop to sign copies of the book, "FAVRE," an autobiography of the future Hall of Fame field leader co-authored by Brett, Bonita and Green Bay Press-Gazette columnist Chris Havel.
The signing, on a first-come, first-served basis, is scheduled to take place from 2 to 5:30 p.m. Fans will be limited to three books per person in order to serve as many people as possible.
Favre's initial visit Dec. 17 was very well received, as the line to see the QB's mother stretched well into the Lambeau Field Atrium.
Co-published by the National Football League and Rugged Land LLC, "FAVRE" spent 14 weeks on the New York Times Hardcover Nonfiction Best-Seller List.
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.
The book, priced at $29.95, is available at the Packers Pro Shop as well as on the Pro Shop's Web site, www.packersproshop.com.
