Fiction Book Discussion

Thursday, June 11, 2015 -
7:30pm to 9:00pm
We'll meet at the library to discuss The Rosie Project by Graeme Simsion. Join genetics professor Don Tillman as he systematically attempts to find love using the scientific methods that have always made sense in the lab, but don't exactly translate to the socially acceptable way to find a mate for life. As Don navigates the social challenges of everyday life living with Asperger's, he learns that you can't find love no matter how scientifically you look for it. When love finds Don, it is a whirlwind that he did not see coming.
