Our next reader at this week’s Frunchroom is John Chatz.
He’s an English major who was convinced to go to law school by his father to carry on a family lawyer history. He spent a few years practicing law, then 17 years working for Cook County Courts and is now a consultant for a large tech company advising justice agencies. Between he and his wife, they have seven kids, one who is four and (as he says) “is 100% ours and was born on the South Side.”
Five years ago, he started writing a blog for ChicagoNow (It’s Never Just Black and White), focusing on his new South Side status, his bi-racial marriage, and other big family, big city issues.
He’ll tell “some bi-racial tales of a North Sider turned South Sider” at the Frunchroom this Thursday, January 19th at 730pm. See you there!
