Jett James Pruitt
Nominated for the Pulitzer Prize at age 15, Jett James Pruitt is an award-winning student, author, political strategist, and founder/editor-in-chief of the political news website, TheGenZPost.com.
Born in 2005 and raised by a single Native American (Taino Arawak) mother in New York City, Jett's unique interest in politics began at the age of nine, blossoming with the 2016 presidential election. At the age of 14, he founded the political news website TheGenZPost.com and became one of the U.S. Press Association’s youngest members in history.
Jett's very first book THROUGH THE EYES OF A YOUNG AMERICAN was published days after his fifteenth birthday. It reached Amazon's Top 20 Bestsellers in Politics and was nominated by his publisher for the 2021 Pulitzer Prize.
Called one of the "Best Books of 2020" by BooksOnPolitics.com, his stellar debut is a powerful commentary on today’s political landscape, and offers ways to resolve our nation’s biggest challenges with health care, taxation, social security, trade, tariffs, protectionism, automation, climate change, education, debt forgiveness, wealth inequality, labor, welfare, wages, military spending, border security, universal basic income, capitalism, entrepreneurship, abortion, gun violence, child sex trafficking, racism, and the COVID-19 Coronavirus pandemic.
Jett is beyond grateful to live with his parents in Palm Beach, Florida. He looks forward to publishing more books before graduating high school in 2024, attending a powerhouse college and law school, and ultimately working in Washington, D.C. in the areas of politics, law, and journalism.
His second book, THE PROGRESSIVE CONSERVATIVE, is due for worldwide release late Fall 2022.
