F STREET—Fans of Frank Lloyd Wright should try to go to the book talk this weekend for Taliesin Diary: A Year with Frank Lloyd Wright. The author, Priscilla J. Henken, lived in The Fellowship (an an architectural colony at Wright's Taliesin building during the 1930s-1950s) and the book is a collection of her diary entries from that time. Her children and the book's editor will be on hand to share stories from their mother's experience in the company of Frank Lloyd Wright and the rest of the devotees. The event is on Sunday, November 18, 2012 at 11:30. Tickets cost $12 for non-members. [NationalBuildingMuseum]

THE MALL—This weekend is the start of the Freer Sackler Gallery's 25th anniversary celebration. Dozens of events are planned for now through February 24th to honor their museum's commitment to Asian art and culture. An exhibit of Ai Weiwei work and a Club Caravan party 'fit for a sultan' are two events that caught our eye. [OfficialSite via CurbedInbox]
