Q&A with Tanner Walters

What is your favorite book of all time?

Everyone says Harry Potter, so I’ll say World War Z by Max Brooks. It sounds like a gory zombie thriller but it’s actually a pretty clever social commentary. 

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

Loyola’s Lake Shore campus in Rogers Park is one of the most beautiful places in Chicago.   

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

Definitely Starbucks, though it’s probably best for my health that it isn’t.   

One thing people wouldn't know about you?

I once switched places with my identical twin brother at school Parent Trap style, but we were caught and sent to the principal’s office. 

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

I studied abroad in Dublin, so Ireland will always have a special place in my heart.
