A CONVERSATION WITH JAMES AND DEBORAH FALLOWS
James & Deborah Fallows and Ben Speggen
On April 21, 2020, we livestreamed a conversation between Jefferson Vice President, Ben Speggen, and writers James and Deborah Fallows.
James and Deborah Fallows, the husband-wife co-author duo of the critically acclaimed bestselling book "Our Towns: A 100,000-Mile Journey into the Heart of America" discussed the towns and cities they visited throughout their multi-year journey (including Erie, Pennsylvania) and to learn about their travels and reporting since.
No strangers to Erie, the Fallows presented at Global Summit X, and were honored with the Thomas B. Hagen Dignitas Award and received keys to the city from Erie Mayor Joe Schember. The Fallows also discussed how they're observing local responses in the wake of COVID-19 to examine how regions can learn from each other.
