In her March 4, 2019 column, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette’s Diana Nelson Jones reports on the refreshing tenor of Jim and Deb Fallowses’ recent talk at Alphabet City, a Pittsburgh bookstore.
She concludes, “The 24-hour news cycle and its rut of addiction to the national clown car is doing us a disservice. Not only are we not finding out what our countrymen are doing, we don’t know what our connection to them is. Our Towns gives us a glimpse at that connection and the people to see our own reflections in. The bounty of evidence the Fallowses brought on their visit to Pittsburgh was nothing short of therapeutic for this weary optimist.”
