Book lovers across Georgia will have an opportunity to meet award winning French writer and literary critic Frederic Beigbeder when he visits Georgia’s capital Tbilisi, later this year.

Georgian-born actress and television host, Olga Babluani, announced the author’s visit on her Facebook page.

“This info will spark huge interest among Georgian readers and they look forward to meeting Frederic. I am pleased to announce that we will have a chance arrange an interesting meeting with him. The exact date of his visit remains unknown, but I will provide this information to everyone very soon,” Babluani, a Paris resident, said in her Facebook post.
