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.

We usually read contemporary fiction but are not limited to literary genre, being fond of good discussions and a fulfilling read we at times choose something completely different.

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.

How this group works: http://www.meetup.com/Pensive-Faust/about/

Influence, Robert Cialdini

Being Mortal, Atul Gawande

Venue and date: CQ Hotel, Cuba St, Thursday  25th  February at 6.00pm
