Television personality and comedian Joan Rivers visited Diesel, A Bookstore last week for a reading and signing for her book “I Hate Everyone…Starting with Me.” Her film crew came along as well to shoot scenes for her reality show “Joan & Melissa.”

The day after the signing, Rivers made headlines after chaining herself to a shopping cart at a Costco in Burbank to protest the store for not selling her book. She reportedly credited her visit to Diesel as part of her inspiration for the protest during a recent interview.
