Join Fairfield County District Library in welcoming local author and tech journalist, Rebecca Fannin, for an evening of conversation about her newly released book, Silicon Heartland.

Join Fairfield County District Library in welcoming local author and tech journalist, Rebecca Fannin, for an evening of conversation about her newly released book, Silicon Heartland. Fannin's latest book is an extensive examination of the migration of Silicon Valley tech giants to the Central Ohio area, and their development and investment in and around Fairfield County.

Rebecca will be here to do a book talk, sign purchasable copies, and speak with patrons about her work. Mayor David Scheffler will also be in attendance, conducting a one-on-one fireside chat with the author as part of the program.

Chronicling her return to America's heartland, CNBC contributor Rebecca A. Fannin provides an optimistic and engaging look at the current entrepreneurial comeback happening in the Midwest, documenting its transformation from Rust Belt to Tech Belt. The American Midwest was once a proud bastion of good-paying jobs and middle-class life. Recently it has come to evoke bleakness: job loss, opiate addiction, despair. But without fanfare, a pivotal movement has grown, quietly transforming the heartland into a high-tech hub, including central Ohio as an epicenter.

In Silicon Heartland, tech journalist Rebecca A. Fannin returns to her hometown region to report on how tech ecosystems—of entrepreneurial talent, venture capital, accelerators, incubators, universities, and R&D are retooling mid-sized heartland cities and Appalachian towns. Remote regions that were nearly forgotten when the money and power shifted to Silicon Valley—and to China—are being rebooted and re-energized like never before. This movement of tech startups burgeoning in Middle America bodes well not only for leading the region to greater heights but also for boosting our economy and morale nationwide.
