February is Library Lovers Month at the library, and we have some special events to celebrate! February 14 marks Library Lovers Day with a book event with rural romance author Loretta Hill, and on February 20, meet the author of the surprising romance The Rosie Project with author Graeme Simsion.
The Rosie Project began life as a screenplay, winning the Australian Writers Guild/Inception Award for Best Romantic Comedy before being adapted into a novel. It went on to win the 2012 Victorian Premier’s Literary Award for an unpublished manuscript and has since been sold around the world to over thirty countries.
DON TILLMAN IS GETING MARRIED. He just doesn’t know who to yet. But he has designed the Wife Project, using a sixteen-page questionnaire to help him find the perfect partner. She will most definitely not be a barmaid, a smoker, a drinker or a late-arriver.
Rosie Jarman is all these things. She is also fiery and intelligent and beautiful. And on a quest of her own to find her biological father—a search that Don, a professor of genetics, might just be able to help her with. The Wife Project teaches Don some unexpected things. Why earlobe length is an inadequate predictor of sexual attraction. Why quick-dry clothes aren’t appropriate attire in New York. Why he’s never been on a second date. And why, despite your best scientific efforts, you don’t find love: love finds you.
