Bryan Ogg is an historian who doesn’t believe in living in the past. Following a very public and messy breakup with Naper Settlement last year, he now is celebrating publication of his new book, “Naperville: A Brief History.”
Times have been tough for the well-respected curator of research, but he is hoping the book will open a new chapter in his life.
“People said to me when I left, this is for the good,” he said. “You have to go through some stuff to get to something better. I was put in a place for a purpose.”
After working at Naper Settlement for more than a decade, Ogg found himself unemployed. Unable to find similar work, he took a temporary job at Kohl’s before moving to a more permanent position at Menards, where he works as a cashier.
