Monte Schulz discusses his novel Metropolis, writing techniques, reading other writers, and influences on his writing. This is episode 505 of Teaching Learning Leading K12, an audio podcast.

Monte Schulz received his M.A. in American Studies from University of California, Santa Barbara. He published his first novel, Down by the River, in 1990, and spent the next twelve years writing a novel about the Jazz Age. Monte is endlessly curious and well versed in world history and theology. He is fascinated by the style and use of innovative language, and can be caught engaging in provocative, philosophical conversations about big, far-reaching, imaginative, ideas and worldly perspectives. His father is the late cartoonist Charles M. Schulz. He lives in Santa Barbara, CA.

A little about Metropolis

Regency College senior Julian Brehm’s uneventful student life is derailed when he falls for Nina Rinaldi, a beautiful young revolutionary engaged in political activism against the authoritarian regime that rules the country and wages a deceitful, distracting war. Julian’s love for — and moral alliance to — Nina eventually leads him into a vast undercity beneath the metropolis. Then, east by train and into the war zone itself, where mortal danger in that expanding cemetery of millions threatens Julian’s life; what he witnesses will alter how he perceives the Republic and ultimately his fate within it.

Our focus today is on Monte, his writing, and his novel Metropolis

Ari Mittleman talks with me about his book Paths of the Righteous: Stories of Humanity, Heroism, and Hope. This is episode 504 of Teaching Learning Leading K12 an audio podcast.

As a native Pennsylvanian deeply involved in the pro-Israel community, the mass shooting at the Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh deeply affected him. That
tragic event spurred Mittleman to write his book, with the hope of it helping to showcase the good in the world that is done for others by those outside their religion, race, or nationality. He works at the nexus of politics, policymaking and the press in Washington, DC.

Mittleman has run a public affairs and strategic communications firm, Keystone Strategy + Advocacy, LLC serving internationally known clients that have ranged from heads of state, celebrities, and global business leaders. Prior to that, he served as a senior advisor to a United
States senator for eight years. He also earlier had served as a grant writer at a Croatia-based NGO.

He is a columnist for The Times of Israel and has contributed articles to USA Today Network, Baltimore Jewish Times, The Morning Call, The Jerusalem Post, Washington Examiner, The Patriot News, Pittsburgh Tribune Review, NorthJersey.com, Modern Diplomacy, and The Jewish Exponent.

He earned a BA from The Department of American Studies from The George Washington University, and his MPA from Fels Institute of Government at University of Pennsylvania.
Proficient in both modern and biblical Hebrew, he has formally studied the language and
traditional Jewish texts since kindergarten and travels regularly to Israel. In total, Mittleman has visited over 40 countries. He is the founding board chairman of St. Bernard Project, a post-Katrina-Rita disaster recovery non-profit that was recognized as a CNN Hero of the Year.

A new father, Ari lives in Pikesville, Maryland, with his wife and daughter. 

Today we are focused on his book Paths of the Righteous: Stories of Humanity, Heroism, and Hope.
