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.
