Her picture book, Grandma’s Gloves, won the California Book Award Gold Medal. She lives in Los Angeles.

CA – America 51 Signing

Corey Taylor, lead singer of Slipknot and Stone Sour, appears at Book Soup on Saturday, August 12th from noon till 3:00 PM to sign America 51: A Probe Into the Realities That Are Hiding Inside “The Greatest Country in the World.” 

ABOUT AMERICA 51:
A skewering of the American underbelly by the New York Times bestselling author of Seven Deadly Sins and You’re Making Me Hate You.

The always-outspoken hard rock vocalist Corey Taylor begins America 51 with a reflection on what his itinerant youth and frequent worldwide travels with his multi-platinum bands Slipknot and Stone Sour have taught him about what it means to be an American in an increasingly unstable world. He examines the way America sees itself, specifically with regard to the propaganda surrounding America’s origins (like a heavy-metal Howard Zinn), while also celebrating the quirks and behavior that make a true-blue American.

Balancing humor, outrage, and disbelief, Taylor examines the rotting core of America, evaluating everything from politics and race relations to family and “man buns.” By continuing the wave of moral outrage begun in You’re Making Me Hate You, Taylor skewers contemporary America in his own signature style.

IMPORTANT! All books signed at Book Revue events must be purchased at Book Revue. If you purchase the book prior to the event please save your Book Revue receipt. If you have purchased the book from somewhere else you can still get your book signed, we just ask that you make a purchase in our store of equal or greater value to that of the book.

PA – Hollywood Babble On LIVE

Ralph Garman & Kevin Smith appear at the Punch Line Philly on Friday, November 3rd at 10:30 PM for a live recording of their podcast HOLLYWOOD BABBLE ON!

Kevin Smith and Ralph Garman take a twisted look at showbiz news and bite the Hollywood hand that feeds them. Sometimes, they feel bad and give Hollywood a tetanus shot and some Neosporin, but, even then, they usually just turn around and bite Hollywood’s other hand. They can’t help it. It’s their nature. It’s like that “scorpion and frog” story. But, deep down, they’re just two nice East Coast boys… who happen to have a heavy dependence on drugs and alcohol, respectively.
