• Sudoku class:

    Divyang "Dave" Pandit, an engineer-author whose Sudoku guide was featured in the Sept. 15 Travel section, will present his puzzle-solving strategies Jan. 7 at the Sunnyvale Public Library, 665 W. Olive Ave.

    The free two-hour session will start at 6:30 p.m. Pandit's "Sudoku Puzzles Guru" is a how-to manual, and travelers are his target audience because Sudoku is often an in-flight diversion for them. Details: http://sunnyvale.ca.gov; www.sudokupuzzlesguru.com.
