City Council; “Adaptation”; “The Korean Vegan Cookbook”; What’s Good Wednesday
Last night, the Jacksonville city council voted on three significant developments. One measure denied voters a chance to decide on a smaller council, and another changed how non-profits could get city money.
Alize Carrere is a Florida-based scientist, filmmaker, and National Geographic Explorer whose recently released PBS series Adaptation looks at the remarkable ways that communities are confronting environmental crises.

While most people have turkey and stuffing on their minds this week, author and social media start Joanne Lee Molinaro is focused on vegan eats.
Molinaro’s debut cookbook, The Korean Vegan Cookbook, features recipes and narrative snapshots of the food that shaped her family history.
