The neighborhoods surrounding Atlanta Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport do not look like they once did a few decades ago. But unlike the airport itself, most haven’t grown. As the airport has slowly become one of, if not the busiest airport in the world, the communities around it have shrunk or disappeared completely.
That’s the focus of a new book called “Flight Path.” The author, Hannah Palmer, grew up in Forest Park and now lives in East Point. The semi-memoir documents the many transformations of Atlanta’s Southside. Hannah Palmer joins us in the studio.
