I have a 240x320 2.8" touchscreen, with "driver IC: ILI9341". It seems to use a SPI interface. How to connect it to the Pi (which pins to which pins of the GPIO?) and how to use it, e.g. from Python to display some text?

I have a similar display for one of my projects. As for the jumper wires, i connected them like this:
I also used this library to draw and display: https://github.com/adafruit/Adafruit_Python_ILI9341
Hope this helps
I know that this is an old post but I have the same LCD and used Brian Lavery's python driver as suggested in the comments above. I modified his code a bit to make it work "better". If anyone is interested with some step-by-step guide, you can read it at https://behindthesciences.com/electronics/connecting-ili9341-SPI-TouchScreen-lcd-to-a-raspberry-pi-in-python/
Happy programming! :)
