First Review Of Silicon Heartland Packs A Punch!
Silicon Heartland: Transforming the Midwest from Rust Belt to Tech Belt
“Journalist Rebecca A. Fannin delivers a spirited account of her road trip through the Midwest to survey the region’s tech-driven revitalization.

As an Ohio native, Fannin’s deep empathy for Midwesterners is palpable, and Fannin’s frank look at the Rust Belt’s resilience inspires while being realistic about the work ahead. This short but meaty travelogue packs a punch.”
