Johannes Lichtman Reading & Conversation with Peter C. Baker

Reed College's Master of Arts in Liberal Studies program presents Portland-based author Johannes Lichtman reading from his critically-acclaimed novel Such Good Work. He will be joined in conversation with author Peter C. Baker.

Johannes Lichtman was named a 5 Under 35 honoree by the National Book Foundation for his debut novel, Such Good Work (Simon & Schuster). His writing has appeared in Tin House, The Sun, Los Angeles Review of Books, Oxford American, and elsewhere, and he is a regular contributor to Travel + Leisure. He holds an MFA in creative writing from University of North Carolina Wilmington and an MA in literature, culture, and media from Lund University. He was born in Stockholm and currently lives in Portland.

Peter C. Baker’s essays, criticism, and reporting have been published by The New Yorker, The New York Times Magazine, The New York Review of Books, The Guardian “Long Read,” and elsewhere. He is currently a finalist for the international True Story Award, in recognition of his writing on Chicago high school students’ attempts to grapple with their city’s history of police torture. His first novel, Planes, to be published by Knopf next year, tells the story of lives in North Carolina and Rome linked by the CIA’s post-9/11 detention and interrogation practices.
