Bristol Tbilisi evening – writing and partying Georgia style

The Girl KingOn 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 and put “Meg Clothier RSVP” in the subject line. Payment for tickets will be taken on the night.

Meg ClothierMeg 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.
