Albert Pyle Urban Lecture
Deborah & James Fallows, authors of
Our Towns: A 100,000-Mile Journey Into the Heart of America
Since 2013, James and Deborah Fallows have been traveling across America in a single-engine prop airplane. Visiting dozens of towns, they have met hundreds of civic leaders, workers, immigrants, educators, environmentalists, artists, public servants, librarians, business people, city planners, students, and entrepreneurs to take the pulse and understand the prospects of places that usually draw notice only after a disaster or during a political campaign.
