We Enter the Fire and Fury of Michael Wolff’s World in Our November 17 Zoom Meeting

Michael Wolff, a magnet for splashy controversy, is the best-selling author, hard-hitting Trump biographer, prolific columnist and winner of two National Magazine Awards who will be our speaker at the November 17 Zoom meeting.

Michael Wolff

One of Wolff’s earliest books, Burn Rate, described how his own start-up company, Wolff New Media, crashed and burned. In 2007, he wrote about the inner workings of Rupert Murdoch’s empire in The Man Who Owns the News. His first book about Donald Trump, Fire and Fury, lit up the media skies with tales of chaos and infighting in the White House. It became a No. 1 best-seller. In Siege: Trump Under Fire, released in 2019, Wolff asserted that prosecutor Robert Mueller drafted an indictment of Trump, but never went ahead with it. His most recent Trump book is Landslide: The Final Days of the Trump Presidency, published in 2021. It was followed by Too Famous, a collection of his articles about such figures as Harvey Weinstein, Ronan Farrow and Jeffrey Epstein.

Though he has sometimes been accused of embellishing quotes and bending facts, he has always denied it. In a recent New York Times column, media columnist Ben Smith gave him a wry thumbs-up: “I have found Mr. Wolff to be annoyingly accurate on big-picture questions ranging from the enduring strength of the television business to the secret motives of moguls.”

Clearly, our talk with Michael Wolff will be informative and entertaining.
