CHESS LIFE, BREAKING DAWN PDF Print E-mail
Written by Alexey W. Root on Fri, Oct 10 2008 (10:17)
At the beginning of August, I piggy-backed my own book signing onto that of the best-seller Breaking Dawn (Stephenie Meyer), because that book has a chess queen and pawn on its cover. Chess Life has now published my article about that book launch evening (have to register to read full article). Part of my article reads, "At the mall entrance, I had a book signing for my own two books, Children and Chess: A Guide for Educators and Science, Math, Checkmate: 32 Chess Activities for Inquiry and Problem Solving." See my books at here and here.

The courses are next offered in spring 2009. The courses are completely online, and may be taken from anywhere with Internet access.
