Bobby Orr!

Wednesday, November 7th, 2018, 6 p.m.

Bruins hockey titan Bobby Orr visits Gibson's Bookstore to sign copies of his new book, Bobby: My Story in Pictures! This will be a limited ticketed event. Tickets will go one sale on Tuesday, October 16th, 2018. Click here to be taken to the Eventbrite ticket page. 

Please note: pre-ordering the book is not the same as buying a ticket. You must buy tickets through the Eventbrite page linked above.

New note: this event is sold out.  Please call the day after the event (on Thursday) to see if any signed copies remain.

Mr. Orr's travel schedule only allows him to spend 3 hours with us, so in order to spend as much time as possible with each fan, this event will be a straight meet & greet signing line, with no speech or presentation. Mr. Orr will be signing copies of Bobby only, no other books or memorabilia. Books purchased outside of Gibson's will not be allowed at this event. 300 tickets will be available for this signing line. Gibson's Bookstore will close early this evening for this event.


Each ticket provides admission for one person, and 1 - 3 copies of Bobby, depending on your selection. You will receive your copies of Bobby at Gibsons' when you arrive for this event. Please be sure to buy the ticket(s) that describe your situation.* For instance, if your group includes three people, and you buy three tickets that include one book each ("Ticket 1"), you will be able to come with three people and you will have three signed books.

  • Ticket 1: $30, admission for one. Includes one copy of Bobby. 1-2 additional copies will be available at the event if you change your mind and want more.
  • Ticket 2: $60, admission for one. Includes two copies of Bobby. One additional copy will be available at the event if you change your mind and want more.
  • Ticket 3: $90, admission for one. Includes three copies of Bobby.

Our friends at Wellesley Books have a great description of the ticketing: 

-Each ticket for the signing line includes a copy of Bobby: My Story in Pictures, and everybody in line needs a ticket. E.g. If a Joe, Cindy, and their child, Ben, want to meet Bobby, all three people need a ticket, and all three will get a copy of the book. No one will be allowed in the line without a ticket/book.

-Each person can buy up to three books with his/her ticket. E.g. Joe can buy one ticket with one book, one ticket with two books, or one ticket with three books. Therefore Joe, Cindy, and Ben could be in the signing line with a minimum of three or a maximum of nine books for Bobby to sign.

-Be absolutely certain to select the correct ticket/book combination when buying your ticket(s). The bookstore will be placing book orders with the publisher based on the information you provide, therefore we cannot guarantee there will be extra copies available at the event.

The incredible story of the life and phenomenal career of hockey's most legendary superstar, told through never-before-seen photographs.

The name Bobby Orr has become synonymous with greatness. With sublime, seemingly effortless grace. With complete dominance over his peers. But also with humility.
    No one who has ever played the game casts quite as long a shadow into legend. And yet, behind the statistics, the trophies, and the championships is the man himself. The son and brother, the teammate, the husband and father. There were losses to go along with the victories, disappointments alongside the accomplishments. Without those people around him, and without the challenges along the way, the triumphs would have meant much less.
    Now, for the first time, Orr opens up about these chapters in his life and the people he shared them with, telling his story though his personal collection of photos. Capturing not only a legendary career and incredible life, Bobby: My Story in Pictures also brings into focus a different time, when the hockey was grittier and being a good person was as important as being a great athlete.
     Intimate, thoughtful, and full of never-before-seen shots of Bobby Orr and those close to him, Bobby: My Story in Pictures is a glimpse into the world of the game's most revered star.
