Wednesday
Larkspur Bookclub Pioneers discuss The Rosie Project
6:30pm

The Larkspur Book Club Pioneers meet to discuss The Rosie Project by Graeme Simsion This event is free and all are welcome and encouraged to attend!

The Rosie Project is an international bestselling romantic comedy featuring the oddly charming, socially challenged genetics professor, Don, as he seeks true love. 
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.

Graeme Simsion is a former IT consultant and the author of two nonfiction books on database design who decided, at the age of fifty, to turn his hand to fiction. His first novel, The Rosie Project, was published in 2013 and translation rights have been sold in over thirty-five languages. Graeme lives in Australia with his wife, Anne, and their two children.

He builds a house for himself and his bird friend, and satisfied after a hard day's work, they take in all they've done and look forward to the next day of building!

Meg Fleming has built many wonders in the field of construction. Her greatest architectural achievement is a 17-foot gum wrapper chain that she made in the car when she was eleven years old.
