The Geography of Small Talk
Mar 25, 2014
How you start a conversation with a stranger depends on where you live. We survey the diverse geography of American greetings—from Honolulu to Hays, Kansas, from Anchorage to Appleton, Wisconsin, from New Orleans to New York.
Based on research and writing by Deborah Fallows.
