The First Friday Club of Chicago


Chaz Ebert

Who will address the topic;

“Roger Ebert- More Than You Know”



Roger Ebert met his wife, Chaz, after being introduced by Eppie Lederer, better known as Ann Landers. They were married on July 18, 1992 at the Fourth Presbyterian Church in Chicago. Chaz was a trial lawyer when they met.

Chaz is a Chicago native. She earned her undergraduate degree from the University of Wisconsin, Madison and her law degree at De Paul University, Chicago. Presently, Chaz is the Publisher of Ebert Digital, President of Ebert Productions and Vice President of The Ebert Company, managing print publishing, television production, public speaking engagements, and organizing the annual Ebertfest film festival.

When Roger Ebert died on April 4, 2013, Rick Kogan wrote this in the Chicago Tribune: “Roger: “I was very sick. ... This woman never lost her love, and when it was necessary, she forced me to want to live. ... Her love was like a wind pushing me from the grave.”

Join us on May 2nd as Chaz Ebert shares with us some special reflections on the love of her life, “Roger Ebert, More Than You Know.”

You will have the opportunity to become a member at the May lunch. All 2014-15 members will be entered into a raffle to win two season tickets to the FFCC lunches next season.
