Consistently popular and well-attended, book discussion groups are a mainstay of Worthington Libraries' quarterly programming for adults.

Whether you fancy fiction or non-fiction, are available in the morning or after work, you'll meet new friends and discover new favorites during monthly meetings.

Northwest Passages meets on the third Wednesday of the month at 10:30am at Northwest Library, 2280 Hard Road. Summer get-togethers for the group are planned on June 19 to consider Susan Cain's Quiet: The Power of Introverts; July 17 when Jasper Fforde's The Eyre Affair is the selected title; and on August 21 to discuss Denise Kiernan's The Girls of Atomic City.

Also starting at 10:30am, but on the last Thursday of the month, are the meetings of the Thursday Morning Book Group. Held at Old Worthington Library, 820 High St., summer selections include Remarkable Creatures by Tracey Chevalier on June 27, The Buddha in the Attic by Julie Otsuka on July 25 and Fall of Giants (chapters 1-20) by Ken Follett on August 22.

Also held at Old Worthington Library are the first Wednesday of the month meetings of the Speaking Volumes book discussion group; all start at 7:30pm. This summer, participants will gather on June 5 to talk about Hilary Mantel's Wolf Hall. The Stranger's Child by Alan Hollinghurst is the selected title of the group's July 10 meeting, and new titles will be chosen on August 7.
