Due to a family emergency, Deborah and James Fallows are unavailable this week, and the May 2 Sweet Thursday talk has been canceled. Our apologies, but we do not anticipate that the talk can be rescheduled.
Our Towns: The Story of a Journey, and of an America That Works.
Since 2013, Deborah and James Fallows have traveled to small communities in every part of the country that have faced economic shocks, political crises, or other serious hardships. Each place they went, they talked with teachers, business creators, mayors, religious leaders, and others involved in shaping their community's future. Our Towns is a series of stories of the building of a new America.
