Corey Taylor appear at Book Revue on Thursday, July 9th, 2015 at 7:00 PM to speak about and sign his new book, You’re Making Me Hate You.
In the tradition of the late great George Carlin, New York Times bestselling author and lead singer of Slipknot and Stone Sour Corey Taylor sounds off in hilarious fashion about the many vagaries of modern life that piss him off.
Whether it’s people’s rude behavior in restaurants and malls, the many indignities of air travel, eye-searingly terrible fashion choices, dangerously clueless drivers, and—most of all—the sorry state of much modern music, Taylor’s humor and insight cover civil society’s seeming decline—sparing no one along the way, least of all himself.
Holding nothing back and delivered in Taylor’s inimitable voice,You’re Making Me Hate You is a cathartic critique of the strange world in which we find ourselves.
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 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.

Ernest Cline, author of Ready Player One, signs his new book at Powell’s City of Books on both Burnside and Cedar Hills on Wednesday, July 15, 2015!
Armada (Crown) is an inventive, heartwarming, and completely nerdtastic adventure from Ernest Cline, bestselling author of Ready Player One. It’s just another day of high school for Zack Lightman. He’s daydreaming through his boring math class, with just one more month to go until graduation and freedom. Then he glances out his classroom window and spots the flying saucer. At first, Zack thinks he’s going crazy. A minute later, he’s sure of it. Because the UFO he’s staring at is straight out of the videogame he plays every night, a popular online flight simulator called Armada — in which gamers protect the earth from alien invaders. But what Zack’s seeing is all too real. And his skills — as well as those of millions of gamers across the world — are going to be needed to save the earth from what’s about to befall it.
Please note: Cline will join us for a lunchtime book signing at our downtown store at 12:30 PM and an evening event (reading and book signing) at our Cedar Hills Crossing location at 7:00 PM.
