Bill Berkson and Clark Coolidge 

When: Wed., June 8, 7:30 p.m. 2011
Price: free

Abstract impressionist Philip Guston was mostly self-taught -- he and schoolmate (and New YorkSchool mate) Jackson Pollock were expelled from the Los AngelesManualArtsHigh School, and while Pollock returned to graduate, Guston did not. Still, Guston went on to lead the charge into Neo-expressionism and become an influential educator for generations of artists. Poet Clark Coolidge and poet/critic Bill Berkson discuss Coolidge's lovingly crafted collection Philip Guston: Collected Writings, Lectures, and Conversations on Wednesday, June 8, at Moe'sBooks (2476 Telegraph Ave., Berkeley). 7:30 p.m., free. 510-849-2087 or
