Pensive Faust Book club is a reading group that meets in Wellington CBD.

We aim to bring together wit, wisdom and offer a new cultural revolution to the Wellington scene. Fuse lively, creative events with brain-teasing and mind-expanding food for thought in the form of discussions, events and exploration of books and music.

Since starting in June 2010 we have read a wide range of novels, including many classics.

If you love reading join our Book club in celebration of the power and diversity of words.
