James and Deborah Fallows to speak today

The University of Alaska Southeast and the Juneau World Affairs Council will present “Postcards from Tomorrow Square” with James and Deborah Fallows today, Nov. 11 at 3 p.m. at the UAS Egan Lecture Hall.

James Fallows, a national correspondent for The Atlantic and winner of the National Book Award, will discuss his book, “Postcards from Tomorrow Square,” which covers China’s economic explosion, environmental impact and the transition to democracy. Reporting from China since 2006, Fallows explores the forces that have transformed China -- from poverty to world superpower -- at breakneck speed.

Deborah Fallows, a linguist and China expert, is the author of “Dreaming in Chinese.” She spent the last few years absorbing the culture, the politics and the people of China, relying on her background in linguistics to help her shed her Western preconceptions and approach the complexities of China through the language.
