 December 21, 2013, is the 100th anniversary of the crossword puzzle—and it's also the day that David Steinberg, crossword editor of The Orange County Register's associated newspapers and the second-youngest constructor to be published in The New York Times under Will Shortz's editorship, will be coming to the Palos Verdes Peninsula Center library to talk about crosswords! After hearing a brief history of the crossword puzzle, you'll learn about the Pre-Shortzian Puzzle Project, find out how a crossword puzzle is constructed and edited, hear strategies for solving even the most challenging of puzzles, and have an opportunity to ask all your crossword-related questions! This program is designed for solvers, constructors, and would-be constructors of all ages—anyone with an interest in the wonderful world of crosswords!
