Hundreds line up to meet Donald Driver | Arts & Culture
Hundreds of Donald Driver fans lined up Friday morning on Madison's west side to meet their hero.
People arrived as early as 5 a.m. for 9 a.m. book signing at Barnes & Noble at 7433 Mineral Point Road across from West Towne Mall to get a spot in line to meet the Packer great. Driver was in Madison to sign copies of his new memoir called "Driven: From Homeless to Hero, My Journeys On and Off Lambeau Field."
The book was released Tuesday.
At about 9 a.m., the line stretched from the Barnes & Noble store entrance nearly to Mineral Point Road. Fans like Lori Lind from Brooklyn came to the west side bookstore to meet the retired Packer.
"For someone who has been basically down to nothing to become such a star, it's incredible." Lind said. "He's a people person, and he's so humble. He's stolen my heart and millions of other people. He's an incredible person."
Driver writes about a variety of things in "Driven" including living in a U-Haul trailer as a boy and winning the Super Bowl with the Packers in 2011.
