Connie Schultz        

Pulitzer-Winning Columnist

It was the gift for crafting “pungent columns that provided a voice for the underdog and underprivileged” that garnered Cleveland Plain Dealer columnist Connie Schultz the 2005 Pulitzer Prize Award for Commentary. With a clear understanding of the joys, foibles, and quandaries of the everyday moments of common folk, her observations resound with people from all walks of life.

Schultz infuses her distinctive voice with a unique sensibility about the way things are and the way they should be. The author of Life Happens: And Other Unavoidable Truths, she displays her clever wit and astute observation, commenting on a wide spectrum of people and events from across the country. In her upcoming book, And His Lovely Wife: A Campaign Memoir from the Woman Beside the Man, she reflects on her life as the wife of a US Senator, revealing the rigors of political campaigns and shenanigans she has witnessed along the way to the US Capitol.

Deep from within the poignant moments of her own life and those she so keenly tapped into around her and around the country, Schultz’s straightforward thoughts continue to come to life in her honest words. Telling the stories of regular people, regaling the underdog with her crisp, and yet heartfelt prose, she offers a fresh, insightful commentary on life today.
