On April 16, The Atlantic and Sixth & I Synagogue partnered to bring one of our most prominent editorial features, “American Futures,” to life. In this ongoing series, National Correspondent James Fallows and his wife Deborah travel together to find stories of surprising resilience and recovery in local communities across the country. In conversation with Atlantic Editor-in-Chief James Bennet, the Fallowses discussed what they have discovered about the country and themselves along the way.
