August 20, 2023
In This Episode:
Pulitzer-Prize winning writer Connie Schultz is Jen’s guest today. Connie is the author of two memoirs. Her first Life Happens: And Other Unavoidable Truths and second …And His Lovely Wife: A Memoir from the Woman Beside the Man. Connie made her fiction debut in 2020 with her New York Times bestselling novel The Daughters of Erietown. And this coming February the youngest readers can welcome into the world her first children’s book, Lola and the Troll.
Formerly a columnist at The Plain Dealer in Cleveland she now writes a weekly column for USA Today. And, she just launched a substack called “Hopefully Yours.” When Connie’s not writing, she’s teaching. She was at Kent State for seven years and this fall is joining the faculty of Denison University’s journalism program.
What makes Connie so special is that she is one of those women who lifts as she rises. A true friend who is there for you in your moments of doubt and your moments of joy. Connie lives in Cleveland with her husband, Senator Sherrod Brown, and their sweet rescue dogs Franklin and Walter. Connie and Sherrod have four children and eight grandchildren.
