It’s been a while since we’ve been to movie theaters, so it’s been a while since we’ve done a crossover discussion at the ol’ HYP Book Club. March’s book will remedy that with “The Queen’s Gambit” by Walter Tevis. Yes, THAT Queen’s Gambit.
About a young girl who overcomes a car crash, the loss of her mother, and an orphanage to become a chess phenom, it’s an engrossing tale of genius, addiction, connection, and maybe most of all, that insular world of chess versus the insular world of her mind. Or vice versa. We’ll be talking about both the book and the TV series, so feel free to consume in whatever order if you haven’t already.
HOW TO ATTEND:
We’ll meet on Zoom, and a link will be sent to those who RSVP. Please RSVP and/or send questions to Joe Foner at firstname.lastname@example.org.
