Library adds third monthly book group

Posted: Monday, February 14, 2011, 9:20 am

From Bronte sisters to Musketeers, in the literary world, good things come in threes.

The recent addition of a third monthly Worthington Libraries book discussion group is another item to add to that "good things" list.

Northwest Passages meetings will be held, appropriately enough, at Northwest Library on the third Wednesday of the month at 10:30 am. The next session, where Abraham Verghese's Cutting for Stone will be considered, is planned this Wednesday, February 16.

Major Pettigrew's Last Stand, Helen Simonson's debut novel, will be the focus of the February 24 gathering of Old Worthington Library's Thursday Morning Book Discussion Group at 10:30 am. Described by the New York Times Book Review as "a beautiful little love story, which is told with skill and humor," the book is set in the small village of Edgecombe St. Mary in the English countryside.

Old Worthington Library's Speaking Volumes Book Discussion Group will meet on March 2 at 7:30 pm to consider P.D. James' The Children of Men. Written with the same rich blend of characterization, narrative drive and suspense as her detective stories, the novel engages with themes of conflicts loyalty vs. duty, corruption of power and redemption through love.
