Bringing our towns back to life
Friday, 1 November 2019
Contrary to the narrative some hold that America is in decline, many towns and cities are experiencing a rebirth. James Fallows, of The Atlantic magazine, and his wife, Deborah, traveled the country, stopping in one small town after another, to witness the forces of entrepreneurship and creativity that are driving an American renewal. They've written a book, "Our Towns," and talked with correspondent Lee Cowan about the creativity, compassion and generosity of small town America that are the driving forces behind a nation remaking itself. Cowan also talked with small business owners (like Duluth, Minn., craft brewers Laura Mullen and Bryon Tonnis) and Greenville, S.C., Mayor Knox White on what helped turn around their communities.
