In the Frunchroom: Ernest Wilkins

As longtime Frunchroom attendees know, we like to bring a variety of experiences, neighborhoods and points of view into our conversations about the South Side. Luckily, we have a cultural anthropologist to help us with that this week.

Ernest Wilkins is a writer and cultural anthropologist. That means he equally studies the history of cities and what people in them eat and dance to. He’s written for national publications like Pitchfork, Rolling Stone, GQ, Complex and Deadspin and locally worked as a music reporter for RedEye Chicago and the Chicago Tribune.

Mr. Wilkins a resident of Humboldt Park, will read an essay on Chicago’s hidden gem, the sweet steak sandwich.

See him and our other readers this Thursday at 730pm at Beverly Woods.
