Simon welcomes author Graeme Simsion to The Radio 2 Book Club, to discuss his debut novel, The Rosie Project.

Previously an IT consultant and educator, Graeme wrote his first book in 1994, and taught at four Australian universities. The Rosie Project was originally written as a screenplay, and won the Australian Writers Guild Award for Best Romantic Comedy Script, in 2010.

Graeme will be discussing how he changed a screenplay to a novel and will be hearing reviews from some of the Drivetime listeners.

We'll also unleash a brand new Confession onto our Collective and help you with your homework.

Plus Matt Williams has the latest sport and Rebecca Pike has the money news.
