A Forthcoming Documentary
HBO is working with James and Deborah Fallows on a documentary relating to their book Our Towns: A 100,000-Mile Journey into the Heart of America
. It is expected to air next summer.
In an announcement of the project that appeared in The Atlantic
, the Fallows said they were conducting a new round of on-the-scene reporting from some of the places visited in their book. One of the subjects they intend to address is the reinvention of schools and libraries.
A goal of the HBO documentary, they said, is to explore “whether solutions being devised at the local level could percolate up to improve national-level politics.”
