Q&A with Katie Pratt

What is your favorite book of all time?

The Princess Diarist. I’m a big Star Wars nerd and an even bigger Carrie Fisher fan.

What is your favorite place in Chicago that isn't a typical tourist destination

The Addison Steps. They’re on the Lakefront Trail but off the beaten path, so you can enjoy the lake and sun without all of the crowds and tourists.

Would you rather have the office stocked 24/7 with Starbucks coffee or Garrett popcorn?

Starbucks because I had a short stint as a barista there and would want to relive my glory days. However, the recipe for this #UnicornFrappuccino boggles me.

One thing people in the world wouldn't know about you?

I’ve ran four marathons. With very little ease and grace, but still finished nonetheless!

If you could live anywhere else in the world where would it be?

Nafplio, Greece. Sun, sea and saganaki — what else could you ask for?
