Maurice Ashley presents Move by Move: Life Lessons On and Off the Chessboard
In conversation with Levy Rozman

Maurice Ashley, the first African American Chess Grandmaster, presents Move by Move: Life Lessons On and Off the Chessboard, a book of life advice drawing on his timeless wisdom of chess. Ashley guides readers through the essential lessons that chess has taught him, using both personal examples from his rise from an immigrant kid playing matches in Brooklyn parks to the most rarified levels of competition, as well as insights from fellow notable chess players. Move by Move reaches from the fundamental to the counterintuitive on subjects ranging from strategic thinking to the importance of failure. Maurice discusses his work with American chess International Master, commentator, and author Levy Rozman, along with a reading and book signing.

Tickets: $22.95 (Each ticket includes a signed copy of Move By Move to be picked up at the event)
