On Friday there’s a chance to celebrate Bristol’s Tbilisi connection and hear from Meg Clothier, journalist and author of The Girl King, a novel about Queen Tamar of Georgia.
Meg will be at Foyles on Friday March 7th (6pm start) discussing her book with our own Jean Burnett who is a long-time member of the Bristol Tbilisi Twinning Association and has visited Georgia herself.
‘Georgia is a wonderful country,’ says Jean, ‘and they throw terrific parties!’
Tickets will be £3 for BTA members and £4 for friends and guests. This will include Georgian snacks and wine and a book signing with an opportunity to purchase “The Girl King”. Ticket Reservations are available directly from Foyles on firstname.lastname@example.org and put “Meg Clothier RSVP” in the subject line. Payment for tickets will be taken on the night.
Meg Clothier studied Classics at Cambridge, spent a year sailing a yacht from England to Alaska, then – after a few false starts – became a journalist. Her last job was working for Reuters in their Moscow bureau before coming back to London to study for a masters degree in post-Soviet politics. Meg lives in London with her husband and two children.
