Pensive Faust Wellington Book club Pages

How this group works:

Each month we choose two books which are drawn from the list created when the club was set up. Members can submit 'nominations for the reading list' via the Discussions - Message Board tab. Please include a brief synopsis and/or reason for nomination.

Reading and finishing both books is optional, this is not homework. Often people have read only one book, sometimes both and in other cases none. You are still welcome to attend the discussion and vote for next month’s books.

Voting for the next month’s books is done by those present at the discussion meeting from a short list of eight consecutive books on the master list. Books that receive no votes are deleted from the list.

You can view the reading list and books read under the ‘Pages’ tab. A short description
of some of the books is available under ‘More’ then ‘Files’ tab.

Other Events:
These are notifications of literary happenings and may include readings, films, plays, author talks, book launches – anything with a vaguely literary flavour. All members are welcome to suggest an event.
Each person is responsible for booking their own ticket as required.

Depending on the event it can sometimes be difficult to meet as a group, however, if you are the host here are some guidelines:
• If allocated seating - post your seat number in comments, so others can book nearby.
• Designate an area to meet 15 minutes before the event starts.
• Email attendees (RHS of event page below RSVP) with your mobile number the day before so they
can text if they can’t find you, are running late or unable to attend.
• Identify yourself for newcomers (meetup sign, description, or wave current book around).
• Don’t wait for ‘no shows’ once the appointed meeting time has passed.
• If venue/time permits you might like to meet for drinks/meal/discussion before or after the main
