San Miguel Crosswords Hot Off the Press!
By Lulu Torbet
Crossword puzzles are good for the brain—and an intellectually acceptable way to procrastinate! For those sanmiguelenses who miss Sheridan Sansegundo’s crossword puzzle in Atención, there is good news. She has just published San Miguel Crosswords—75 moderately demanding crossword puzzles, many using San Miguel clues such as local street names or churches. Nearly all sneak in a few words in Spanish. Sheridan compares the difficulty level, for those of you who are already crossword fans, to that of The New York Times’ Wednesday puzzle.
Ms. Sansegundo also creates a weekly puzzle for The East Hampton Star, a New York newspaper where she was the arts editor for 20 years before retiring to San Miguel.
In what is laughingly called winter in San Miguel, there will be a few chilly days. If you run off to the beach, take a copy of San Miguel Crosswords with you because, let’s face it, beaches are boring. Or you might curl up in front of your artificial log fire with San Miguel Crosswords, so you don’t have to move off the sofa, except to fetch another cup of hot soup.
All profit from the sale of San Miguel Crosswords will be donated to Casa Hogar Santa Julia, which provides girls in need or without family support, a home and education, to help them grow into educated women who break the cycle of ignorance, poverty, and abuse from which they came, and become happy, healthy, and productive citizens of the world.
San Miguel Crosswords costs 150 pesos and is available at La Biblioteca, Garrison & Garrison Books on Hidalgo, from firstname.lastname@example.org or through Amazon.
