Award-winning journalist James Fallows has lived and worked around the world, but his newest book is all about small town America. In researching "Our Towns" Fallows and co-author (and wife) Deborah Fallows traveled to nearly 50 cities across the nation. The two discovered an optimism for the future of America, which Fallows says is a departure from the popular narrative that America has lost its way. James Fallows joins us at the Presidio Officers’ Club in San Francisco as part of our Forum On the Road series.
