Below are a few selected photos from the Official Book Launch Party for The Fire. The soirée was held in a unique location in Georgetown, Washington, DC. Among my co-hosts was Grandmaster Susan Polgar. Susan was the first female player to qualify for the Men’s World Chess Championship (1986), and held the title of Women’s World Chess Champion from 1996 to 1999. She is also the founding president of SPICE (Susan Polgar Institute for Chess Excellence – currently located at Webster University) which aims to promote chess throughout the US, especially to girls.
