Women's Chess Workshops, April 19 and May 3

Inspired by the success of 9 Queens in Tucson, Ariz., at increasing participation in chess among underrepresented populations, the Chicago Chess Center is holding free Women's Chess Workshops at two Chicago Public Library branches: Logan Square (Saturday, April 19, 2–4 PM) and Avalon (Saturday, May 3, 2–4 PM). These two-hour workshops are open to women of all ages (along with future women ages 7 and up). Learn the rules of chess from square one, or improve your game if you play already. We're especially pleased and excited that Darrian Robinson, a USCF candidate master and currently the highest-rated African-American female player in the nation, will be our guest instructor.

Advance registration is not required. All participants are invited to stay and play until closing!
