'Robopocalypse' author to host Tigard book signing
Wilson, who lives in Portland, is best known for his novels "Robopocalypse," and "Amped" as well as his non-fiction works "How to Survive a Robot Uprising" and "How to Build a Robot Army."
Wilson has a doctorate in robotics from Carnegie Mellon University and masters degrees in robotics and artificial intelligence.
Shortly after its release, Steven Spielberg signed on to direct a film version of "Robopocalypse" which was meant to be released in 2014, but put the film on indefinite hiatus earlier this year saying the project was "too important" to do without the right script and budget.
Books will be available for sale at the signing and Wilson will also discuss robotics and the technology featured in his works
