Michael Wolff (‘Fire and Fury’) will return to Montclair
Just announced: on Friday, May 18, at 8 p.m., Michael Wolff, a Montclair Academy graduate and the author of “Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House,” will appear at the Wellmont Theater, 5 Seymour St.
Wolff graduated from Montclair Academy in 1971.
According to his yearbook, Wolff was student council president and a member of the Political Club and Leones Debating Society. When we wrote about his time in school here, we spoke to Barry Nazarian, a former teacher in the school. Nazarian said that the 1970s was the era of youths standing up against the establishment, and “Michael absolutely captured that moment … and he won,” Nazarian said.
Montclair Academy, a boys’ school for grades 7-12, and the Kimberley School, a girls’ school spanning pre-K to the 12th grade, merged in 1974 to create the current Montclair Kimberley Academy.
“Fire and Fury” debuted at #1 on the New York Times and Amazon bestsellers lists, and sold almost two million copies in its first four weeks, making it one of the fastest selling nonfiction books in recent memory. It is being translated into 35 languages, and, according to the Welmmont, is currently slated to become a television series. Wolff has contributed to Vanity Fair, New York Magazine, USA Today, The Hollywood Reporter, the Guardian, and British GQ. He is the author of six prior books.
