The Chamber has been busy leading a reinvention of ‘Our Town.’ This program will include a presentation by journalists Deborah and James Fallows along with the introduction of a new Chairperson for the Chamber’s Board of Directors.
Since 2013, journalists Deborah and James Fallows have traveled to small communities in every part of the country. These communities have faced economic shocks, political crises and other serious hardships. Each place they went, they talked with teachers, business creators, mayors, religious leaders, students, artists and architects, librarians and others involved in shaping their community’s future. As they traveled across the country, at low altitude in their small airplane, they viewed the patterns of river and hill from above. These features explain the pattern of American settlement. On the ground, they saw the emerging pattern of American reinvention.
These travels culminated in the 2018 national best seller Our Towns: A 100,000-Mile Journey into the Heart of America and the OUR TOWNS documentary on HBO Max.
