➤ OPEN­ING RE­CEP­TION: Firnew Farm Artists’ Cir­cle is pleased to an­nounce, “A View with a Room,” our 5th Annual Group Art and Pho­tog­ra­phy Show at Wood­berry For­est’s Walker Fine Arts Cen­ter Baker Gallery, from Aug. 28 through Oct. 29.

➤ SEC­OND FRI­DAY: The Sec­ond Fri­day Talk is at 8 p.m. at the the Lit­tle Wash­ing­ton Theater. Richard Clarke will be the guest speaker. His new book is, Warn­ings: Find­ing Cas­san­dras to Stop Catas­tro­phes, which cen­ters on whether the coun­try could have headed off a series of dis­as­ters be­fore they hit. His talk will cen­ter on sev­eral past crises — 9/11, Hur­ri­cane Ka­t­rina, Bernie Mad­off, the 2008 melt­down, among them; and sev­eral fu­ture ones — cli­mate change, hack­ing the elec­tri­cal grid, ge­netic en­gi­neer­ing. Clarke’s ar­gu­ment is that be­fore every calamity, some ex­pert spots dan­ger and tries to sound the alarm, but most of­ten no one takes their warn­ings se­ri­ously. How we can pick out those warn­ing voices ahead of time is the sub­ject of the talk. Clarke served as a na­tional se­cu­rity hon­cho in four pres­i­den­tial ad­min­is­tra­tions, from Ron­ald Rea­gan to Ge­orge W. Bush, and he wrote the No. 1 best­seller, Against All En­e­mies, which was a be­hindthe-scenes look at coun­tert­er­ror­ism and how the U.S. be­came in­volved in Iraq. The New York Times called it “a heart-stop­ping ac­count of the tur­moil in­side the White House on the morn­ing of September 11.” Ev­ery­body is wel­come.
