9 Queens Fourth Annual Chess Fest!

The 4th Annual Chess Fest is scheduled for April 2 from 2-5 pm at the Hotel Congress. This year's theme is "Through the Looking Glass" and will feature two-time American Women's Chess Champion Jennifer Shahade as the Red Queen. In addition to a free speed chess tournament, chess lessons, face-painting, and a human chess match with characters from the book, Jen will also be signing copies of our new book, Play Like A Girl. Buy your copy in advance on our website and get her to sign it at the event.

Chess Fest is a completely, free, family friendly activity. Help support this event by making a safe, tax-deductible donation here.

If you missed the announcement a few weeks ago:

9 Queens co-founder Jen Shahade's latest book, Play Like a Girl!: Tactics by 9Queens was just released from Mongoose Press. The book is filled with chess puzzles and combinations, all executed by female chess champions. The book is available at 9queens.org and all author royalties go to 9 Queens initiatives to bring chess to those most in need of its benefits.
