Chess Lessons with James Patterson

During Family Game Night, local chess player and United States Chess Federation member James Patterson is here to teach anyone of any age about the game of chess. Patterson believes chess is an important tool for building problem-solving skills, increasing the ability to solve puzzles, keeping the brain healthy, and challenging us to think logically. Most of his early knowledge of the game came from reading books at the McCracken County Public Library.
