As the climate change summit in Glasgow comes to an end, Abdul El-Sayed gave us his thoughts on youth activism and Michigan’s future. Then, what happens to the deer population when there are fewer hunters? And, Ojibwe author Angeline Boulley on her debut novel, a YA thriller about an 18-year-old Anishinaabe sleuth.
