DPL Book Club: The Rosie Project

July 20 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

| $6

July’s book is The Rosie Project, by Australian author Graeme Simsion.

The art of love is never a science: Meet Don Tillman, a brilliant yet socially inept professor of genetics, who’s decided it’s time he found a wife. In the orderly, evidence-based manner with which Don approaches all things, he designs the Wife Project to find his perfect partner: a sixteen-page, scientifically valid survey to filter out the drinkers, the smokers, the late arrivers.


Rosie Jarman possesses all these qualities. Don easily disqualifies her as a candidate for The Wife Project (even if she is “quite intelligent for a barmaid”). But Don is intrigued by Rosie’s own quest to identify her biological father. When an unlikely relationship develops as they collaborate on The Father Project, Don is forced to confront the spontaneous whirlwind that is Rosie―and the realization that, despite your best scientific efforts, you don’t find love, it finds you.


This month’s meeting will be held on Wednesday, July 20, 2022, at 7:00 PM at Arsenal Tap House on West Liberty Ave. There is a $6 beverage fee payable to the server, and this program is for adults 21 and over only. Call 412-531-8754 or email dormont@dormontlibrary.org to register.
