Kensington Row Bookshop Event - Saturday, April 18

An Afternoon of Chess and Folk Music!
Featuring Chess Master Allan Savage and Folk Singer Doris Justis

Saturday April 18, 1-3pm

Allan Savage, US Life Master and former Maryland State Champion will be present for a couple hours to play chess against anyone. In this mini simultaneous exhibition, he will play multiple opponents at the same time. Chess sets and refreshments will be provided.

Allan is a native Washingtonian who lives in Kensington. He has competed in international tournaments, authored several chess books, written for numerous chess magazines, and taught chess for over 30 years in four states. He has performed simultaneous exhibitions at past Day of the Book celebrations in Kensington. On May 28, he will be giving a talk on chess and books here at the bookshop.

Doris Justis has been a mainstay of the local folk and acoustic scene for over 25 years - producing concerts, coffeehouse events and her own live radio program. Her first love is singing and performing. Now she debuts her first solo CD, Who to Turn to, presenting originals, contemporary and traditional tunes and new arrangements of old favorites with her band. She also performs in the popular duet, Side by Side, with Sean McGhee, and of course, solo.
