On Monday, March 11, 2024, Lost City Books in Washington, DC, will host Jessi Jezewska Stevens as she returns to discuss her latest book, "Ghost Pains." The event, scheduled from 7:00 PM to 8:00 PM, promises a captivating evening featuring Stevens in conversation with Johannes Lichtman, author of "Calling Ukraine." Stevens's new work delves into the lives of women navigating the post-party era, throwing disastrous parties, flirting amidst landscapes of terror, and waking up with old flames in new cities. The stories explore the intricate labyrinths of history, love, and ethics in a fractured American present, providing a shambolic human perspective on significant questions. This event will not only showcase Stevens's talent in examining profound themes but also serve as a triumphant statement of purpose from one of the most promising young writer-thinkers. The reading will be followed by a conversation between Jessi Jezewska Stevens and Johannes Lichtman, offering attendees a unique insight into the creative minds behind these compelling works. Accessibility note: The event is located up two flights of stairs, and Lost City Books does not have an elevator. The evening is free, and attendees are encouraged to RSVP in advance for seat availability.
