About Us

Reducing Environmental Impact | Reconnecting the Community | Reviving Bohemia
Established in the summer of 2015, Lit. on Fire Used Books is the brainchild of Jessica Stephenson, the unconventional proprietor with exceptional vision. A lost investment in another local shop turned into a blessing in disguise when she decided to use her wisdom, her experience, and her entire life savings to start selling books independently.
Since its inception, Jessica has hosted numerous community events that have shaped her vision for a true literary community, including an open mic and (sometimes) local author spotlight on the third Wednesday of every month, special bookish movie and television screening nights, and even publishing a handmade literary zine featuring local poets, authors, artists, and photographers.
