11/15/12 - Thursday's Topical Currents begins with discussion of the anthology HOMEGROWN IN FLORIDA. It’s a collection of essays which address growing up in Florida – perhaps a child’s remembrance of “paradise.” Writing by Zora Neale Hurston, Carl Hiaasen, Jeff Klinkenberg and even Tom Petty is included. Also, Palm Beach Post reporter and author Carlos Frias, whose essay is included in the book. And more. Linda Gassenheimer with celebrity Chef Joanne Weir. They have unique tips for an easy but delectable Thanksgiving Dinner.
