Book Discussion: The Rosie Project by Graeme Simsion

http://kidscat.hcpl.net/uhtbin/cgisirsi/?ps=PikhVal4rF/HCPL/309330143/123Join us for a book discussion over The Rosie Project, by Graeme Simsion, on Monday, April 17, 6:30 pm-7:30 pm. Don Tillman, a brilliant geneticist, thinks that having women fill out a six-page, double-sided questionnaire before a date is logical and reasonable. Rosie Jarman, an impetuous barmaid, thinks Don should loosen up and learn to live a little. Follow the unlikely pair in this laugh-out-loud, feel-good story of unexpected joys, discovery and love. At this time, copies are available at the library. No registration needed for book discussion.
