Group to savor 'Dinner' this fall

Posted: Monday, August 12, 2013, 9:20 am

If you're a fan of Gillian Flynn's Gone Girl, don't miss The Dinner by Dutch writer Herman Koch. While both books leave you guessing about who you can trust and end in stunning fashion, the latter serves its violence and treachery from a distance with a subtlety that's exquisitely creepy and cold.

Sample the book and share your thoughts with the rest of the Speaking Volumes book discussion group on September 4, when the selected title is The Dinner.

Speaking Volumes meets on the first Wednesday of the month at 7:30pm at Old Worthington Library. New titles will be chosen this month for the rest of the year, so call 614-807-2626 to find out what will be featured during the group's October 2 and November 6 meetings.

Also held at Old Worthington Library are the last Thursday of the month meetings of the Thursday Morning Book Group; all start at 10:30am. This fall, participants will gather on September 26, October 24 and November 21 to talk about chapters 21-40 of Fall of Giants by Ken Follett, Until Tuesday by Luis Carlos Montalván and In the Garden of Beasts by Erik Larson, respectively.

The Northwest Passages book discussion group meets at Northwest Library, on the third Wednesday of the month at 10:30 am. Fall selections include Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte on September 18, 1491: New Revelations of the Americas before Columbus by Charles Mann on October 16 and 11/22/63 by Stephen King on November 20.
