The Boyfriend Project by @FarrahRochon is next up for NOLA Book Club!
The Boyfriend Project
Mark your calendars, invite your friends…
Wednesday, March 31st, 7 pm CST (5pm PST)
Farrah Rochon’s The Boyfriend Project is our March 2021 book of the month for NOLA Book Club, over Zoom. We will put out the zoom credentials as we get closer to the date.
Here’s the blurb for The Boyfriend Project:
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 and no dating.
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 Daniel Collins at work. What are the chances? But is Daniel really boyfriend material or is he maybe just a little too good to be true?
“A smart, funny digital-age romance about real women living in the real world. Couldn’t put it down!” –Abby Jimenez, USA Today bestselling author of The Happy Ever After Playlist

Also, if you want to get a head start:
April 21st we will be doing Mosquito Supper Club: Cajun Recipes from a Disappearing Bayou by Melissa M. Martin.
May : we will be doing Economy Hall: The Hidden History of a Free Black Brotherhood, by Fatima Sheik.
There’s a method in the madness for scheduling. Mosquito Supper Club is a bit pricey ($35), but it’s been out there for a while. So, folks who might want to borrow it from their library (or do an ILL) will have time to get that. Economy Hall doesn’t drop until the 15th of March.
We’ve got dates in mind for April and May, but they’re open to discussion. For March, we’ve got two gatherings under our belts, and we had better attendance on a Wednesday than a Thursday. If we’re wrong about Wednesdays being better, please give us some feedback!
Happy reading !
