misc_none.png 7:00 PM  -  8:00 PM Celebrate Romance Awareness Month: Book Discussion with Author Farrah Rochon Download Event Info Download Event Info Tell a Friend
    Contact: The Library     eventscoordinator@dcls.org
   

Celebrate Romance Awareness Month and read The Boyfriend Project by Farrah Rochon with The Library! Grab a drink and a sweet treat to enjoy while we discuss this swoon-worthy book together. Bring any questions you have for Farrah, as she will be joining us for a Q&A session during the program! The sequel, The Dating Playbook, will be available August 17th.

Samiah Brooks never thought she would be “that” girl. But a live tweet of a horrific date just revealed the painful truth: she’s been catfished by a three-timing jerk of a boyfriend. Suddenly Samiah–along with his two other “girlfriends,” London and Taylor–have gone viral online. Now the three new besties are making a pact to spend the next six months investing in themselves. No men, no dating, and no worrying about their relationship status . . .

For once Samiah is putting herself first, and that includes finally developing the app she’s always dreamed of creating. Which is the exact moment she meets the deliciously sexy, honey-eyed Daniel Collins at work. What are the chances? When it comes to love, there’s no such thing as a coincidence. But is Daniel really boyfriend material or is he maybe just a little too good to be true?

1 hour. For ages 18+. Registration is required. Registrants will be emailed a Zoom link, password, and further instructions.
