Yes, Bay Area

When: Sun., Nov. 18, 7:30 p.m. 2012

Lit events don't get much more dynamic, contemporary, or quietly subversive than this. Yes, Bay Area features not an author, but a rapper (local hero Lyrics Born), reading not a novel, but his own tweets, for a crowd that we can only assume will be not lit-event sedate but rap-show engaged. Brought to you by First Person Singular, a lit series that's basically made a mission out of being dynamic/contemporary/subversive, the event will feature 140-character nuggets of wisdom culled from the rapper's limited-edition book of the same. To which we can only say: Yes, Bay Area. At Pegasus Books Downtown (2349 Shattuck Ave., Berkeley) on Sunday, Nov. 18. 7:30 p.m., free. 510-649-1320 or
