Face Time with Margaret Ritchie

Batavia resident Margaret Ritchie, 85, was at the Batavia Public Library when she answered nine questions for the Kane County Chronicle’s Brenda Schory.  

Where did you grow up? St. Charles

Who would play you in the movie of your life? Meryl Streep or Judi Dench

First job? I sold cakes at Gartner’s Bakery in St. Charles.

As a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up? I became an X-ray technician and then a mother.

A book you’d recommend? “The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society” by Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows

Favorite charity? United Cerebral Palsy

What game show would you be on? “Jeopardy”

Favorite local restaurant? Apple Villa in Batavia

What is an interesting factoid about yourself? I started a book club at the Town and Country Library in Elburn in 1995, and I still run it, from noon to 2 p.m. every third Tuesday of the month. I missed once because I was serving as an election judge, but they made a recording of the meeting so I would know what went on. Those interested in the book club can call the library at 630-365-2244.
