(Harrisburg) -- Philadelphia Eagles fans undoubtedly still wake up pinching themselves as a reminder that, yes, their favorite team did, in fact, win the Super Bowl earlier this year.

Nick Foles, the championship quarterback, might very well do the same thing, especially considering his unorthodox path to Super Bowl Most Valuable Player.

The 29-year-old QB will be visiting central Pennsylvania this week, a guest of Midtown Scholar Bookstore in Harrisburg where he'll be signing copies of his new book, "Believe It: My Journey of Success, Failure, and Overcoming the Odds." He will also be a guest on WITF's Smart Talk Friday.

The June 29 event is a ticketed book signing, meaning you must purchase tickets (and the book) to get in. Cost is $30. He will only be signing books, so no other photos or memorabilia.

The event is scheduled to last from 2:30 until 4:30.

Foles, previously a Pro Bowl quarterback with the Eagles, had lost his starting spot and spent forgettable seasons with the St. Louis Rams and Kansas City Chiefs before re-signing with the Eagles in March 2017 to serve as the backup to rising star and 2016 first-round pick Carson Wentz.

Though Wentz was enjoying an MVP-caliber season with the Eagles last year, he tore his ACL in Week 14, an injury that was seemingly a gut-punch to Philly's previously optimistic playoff hopes.

Foles, though, stepped in, found his figurative footing, and led the NFC East champs to playoff victories of Atlanta and Minnesota before his outstanding performance in a 41-33 Super Bowl victory over New England, the first in Eagles history.

In that game, he completed 28 of 43 passes for 373 yards and three touchdowns while also catching a TD pass from tight end Trey Burton.

"Believe It" charts Foles' path to triumph, with both on-field and behind-the-scene stories as he rediscovered his love for football.
