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.

Named to Bloomberg’s Best Books of 2018
