Event description

Description


For the past five years, Jim and Deb Fallows traveled across America in a single-prop airplane visiting dozens of small and medium-sized towns. They met hundreds of civic leaders, workers, immigrants, educators, environmentalists, artists, public servants, librarians, businesspeople, city planners, students and entrepreneurs. They sought to understand the prospects of places that do not typically draw much notice, except during political campaigns or following natural disasters.

They found an America that is acutely aware of its problems - from economic instability to opioid crisis - and one that is crafting solutions, with a practical-minded determination. Their view of the country - chronicled in Our Towns - is as complex and contradictory as America itself, but it also reflects the energy, generosity, compassion, dreams and determination of many who are in the midst of making things better.
