The glue should be enough. I have seen folks make tables like this, where the glued up planks are tongue and groove- either from a router or just cutting a dado along the edge..
That adds dramatically to the gluing surface, as well as ensuring all the surfaces remain flush with eachother.

32 radius is a pretty big circle – I would try to lay it out so that the joints are as far from the edge as possible. the thin wedge around the joint would be weak, and have higher seasonal changes in dimension due to humidity.
