Sudoku Basics Workshop

Divyang (Dave) Pandit used to find Sudoku puzzles difficult, even though he was a General Motors engineer. That is until his mother showed him the connection between sudoku and east Indian dance. His mom, without the ability to speak English and with only a seventh-grade education, could easily solve the Sudoku puzzles. Mr. Pandit, author of Sudoku Puzzles Guru, will share the secrets for keeping your mind sharp and solving the puzzles using his mother's teachings. Please join us for a fun, informative evening on October 8 at 7:00 PM.
