WEDNESDAY

If seeing The Sixth Sense for the sixth time has got you staying up nights petrified of creepy little kids with huge eyes who can talk to ghosts, you might want to get a life. Or try to remember your previous one. Spook freaks can indulge their shivering lust at a book signing by Washington Post editor Tom Shroder, author of Old Souls: The Scientific Evidence for Past Lives. In the book, Shroder chronicles the work of Ian Stevenson, a psychiatrist who has spent almost 40 years documenting cases of young children who claim to remember their past lives. If you can’t bear to watch Dawson’s Creek because all the kids talk like adults, imagine kids who actually used to be adults. Shroder will be saying the darndest things at 7 p.m. at Politics & Prose, 5015 Connecticut Ave. NW. Free. (202) 364-1919. (Neil Drumming)
