Flyover states or the heart of America? The Rust Belt, cities with big shoulders, lakes on fire, God’s Country; miles of corn, cows, tall buildings, bodies of water, big sprawling cities, and bucolic tiny towns. Cities that work, and others that don’t; political corruption, small minded people and really big thinkers. The Midwest is America, and on September 17th at Housing Works, these readers will explore why that is.
