The American Crossword Puzzle Tournament takes place this weekend, March 16-18, in Brooklyn, NY, and it promises to be another great one. Here’s a recent interview with Will Shortz (scroll down to the Shortz pic) on uber-constructor Brendan Emmett Quigley’s site.
Aside from my judging duties, I’ll have a table in the puzzle marketplace, with 20% of every sale going to support my two high-school-age nieces’ upcoming walk to fight Crohn’s disease. The two of them will be (wo)manning the table themselves.
The wares for sale will include approximately 25 different puzzle-book titles of mine (for kids and adults both) and a brand-new crossword ambigram iron-on (pictured above; it reads the same upside down) with which you can make your own ambigram t-shirt. A sheet of iron-ons is $5 and books are either $5 or $10. I hope you’ll stop by and, if nothing else, give them a smile and a thumbs up.
