About us

Founded in 2006, Agora publishes Georgian authors but mainly focuses on translations of fiction: novels, stories and poetry; philosophical, historic, sociological and anthropological essays; and children’s literature. Agora has published more than a hundred books to date, among them classic and modern works by American, Belgian, Swiss, Italian, New Zealand, Canadian and Turkish authors. The majority of its publications, however, belong to French authors. In 2014, Marina Balavadze was named a Chevalier de l’Ordre des Arts et des Lettres by the French government for her special contribution to publicizing French culture.
