This is a past event.

A.D. Winans, Clive Matson, Richard Krech, and Luis Garcia 

When: Sun., Aug. 21, 7 p.m. 2011

In 2008, San Francisco underground cartoonist S. Clay Wilson (who is said to have inspired R. Crumb, as well as a whole generation) was found face down, roughed up, and unconscious between two parked cars. The circumstances of his state remain unknown (Did he fall? Was he attacked?), as he suffered a traumatic brain injury and spent three weeks in a coma. Though he eventually awakened, Wilson now suffers from aphasia, short-term memory loss, and needs 24-hour care. A fund has been set up for the cartoonist (who still draws), and a fund-raiser featuring poets A.D. Winans, Clive Matson, Richard Krech, and Luis Garcia will be held on Sunday, Aug. 21, at Art House Gallery & Cultural Center (2905 Shattuck Ave., Berkeley). 7 p.m., $10 donation. All proceeds go to the S. Clay Wilson Special Needs Trust. SClayWilsonTrust.com
