Book groups prove popular programs

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.

Old Worthington Library's Thursday Morning Book Discussion Group will meet on April 22 at 10:30 am to consider Amy Stewart's Flower Confidential. Stewart explores the relevance of flowers in our lives and history, and in the process reveals all that has been gained and lost by tinkering with nature.

The library's Get Smart! Book Discussion Group, which meets quarterly to talk about books of interest to busy leaders, supervisors and professionals, has an April 29 discussion planned. The selected title, Leadership Gold: Lessons Learned from a Lifetime of Leading, was written by John C. Maxwell, an internationally renowned leadership expert.

Presented in partnership with the Worthington Area Chamber of Commerce, the book discussion will start at 5:30 pm at the AAA Auto Club, 90 E. Wilson Bridge Road.

The Guernsey Literary & Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Ann Shaffer will be the focus of the May 5 gathering of Old Worthington Library's Speaking Volumes Book Discussion Group at 7:30 pm. Set in London as the city is emerging from the shadow of World War II, the story focuses on a club born as a spur-of-the-moment alibi after its members are discovered breaking curfew by the Germans occupying their island.
