Jen on the Road: From Philly to Nashville
By Jennifer Shahade

Jen speaking at the Philly Girls Play Chess tournament
I just arrived in Nashville to join thousands of young people for SuperNationals V.  On my way here, I hosted and spoke at the "ASAP Philly Girls Play Chess" tournament at Drexel, which was also a memorial for my mother Sally Solomon, a chemistry professor at Drexel.  At that event, which I'll write more about later, a teenaged girl handed me a ballpoint pen and asked me to sign her forearm. Ouch!  In that vein, I wanted to remind readers about the book signing schedule here in Nashville. 

At 6:15 on Friday, right after my seminar on popularizing chess, I will be signing copies of "Play Like a Girl" 

From 3 to 5 PM on Friday and from 4 to 6 PM on Saturday, GM Alexandra Kosteniuk will be signing books and other merchandise. Kosteniuk has already arrived in Nashville and she tweeted @chessqueen, "Just checked in the Gaylord Opryland's Presidential Suite, never had such a big room in my life, thanks to @USChess and the game of chess!"

On 11:30 AM Saturday, Dr. WIM Alexey Root will be signing copies of her books. You can read more about her seminar and her books in her SuperNationals V preview.
