Lip Service West: True Stories

When: Fri., Aug. 9, 7:30 p.m. 2013

There’s your run-of-the-mill reading, and then there’s Lip Service West. Led by Joe Clifford, a heavily inked former heroin addict with a self-professed weakness for Jack Kerouac, Lip Service West showcases the less-than-rosy lives of writers. Thriving off a certain brand of gritty stories that can only come from the day-to-day lives of the creative and occasionally downtrodden, the event features writers — professional and otherwise — baring it all, to hilarious and heartbreaking effect. Join Clifford and his cast of five featured readers this Friday at Pegasus Books (2349 Shattuck Ave., Berkeley) for the next iteration of the bi-monthly literary spectacle.
