We’ll meet the folks behind Forno Rosso as part of Foodie Friday. They’ll let us know about how to make Italian food on wheels, and give us a recipe for the weekend. Former KTOO employee Susan Fitzgerald will preview her Juneau World Affairs Council presentation about the refugee situation on the U.S.-Mexico border. The Alaska Women’s Lobby will highlight their activism awards luncheon, and we’ll get a preview of Juneau Pride Week and the GLITZ Drag Show.
