Georgian Literature Reading Series

As part of our mission to promote Georgian culture, we were pleased to launch the “Virtual Georgian Literature Reading Series.” The goal of the series is to create an informal and interactive forum for those with interest in Georgian history and culture to read and discuss important Georgian books, both classic and contemporary. To that end, the meetings are discussion-based, and limited to 20 participants. The first edition of the series met a total of four times to discuss Nino Haratischvili’s internationally acclaimed novel “The Eighth Life.” Members of the Association’s Board of Directors, Stephen Jones and Valerian Sikhuashvili, led the sessions. The association will provide complimentary copies of the book to those who are currently undergraduate students.
