Hill Center at the Old Naval Hospital: 921 Pennsylvania Ave. SE, Washington, DC 20003
In collaboration with The Alan Cheuse International Writers Center and The George Washington University.
Lisa Page, The George Washington University's Director of Creative Writing, moderates a conversation and reading featuring novelist Johannes Lichtman at the Hill Center at the Old Naval Hospital.
Johannes Lichtman’s debut novel, Such Good Work, was chosen as a 5 Under 35 honoree by the National Book Foundation. His second novel, Calling Ukraine, will be published in April 2023. His work has appeared in Tin House, The Sun, Travel + Leisure, Los Angeles Review of Books, Oxford American, and elsewhere.
The New York Times has called Lichtman a “remarkable thinker,” and novelist and critic, Garth Greenwell notes, "Johannes Lichtman’s great subject is morally compromised idealism, and he brings to it an electric intelligence and an allergy to ready-made judgements.” He lives in Washington, DC, and is currently the Jenny McKean Moore Writer-in-Washington at The George Washington University.
Lisa Page is co-editor of We Wear The Mask: 15 True Stories of Passing in America (Beacon Press). Her work has appeared in The Atlantic, LitHub Weekly, The Crisis, Virginia Quarterly Review, American Short Fiction, Playboy, the Washington Post Book World and other publications. She is assistant professor of English at The George Washington University and Director of Creative Writing. She previously served as Interim Director of Africana Studies.
