Making a Mystery at Porter Square Books

January 27, 2020—7PM to 8:30PM

Porter Square Books, 25 White Street, Cambridge, MA 02140 get directions

Please join Porter Square Books in welcoming mystery writers Clea Simon, Joanna Schaffhausen, Kate Flora, and Julie Hennrikus (aka Julia Henry or Julianne Holmes) for a panel event where a mystery story will be written before your eyes. But the authors won’t be the ones making the mystery – you will!

If you haven’t participated in one of these Sisters in Crime events, here’s the deal: Four authors from thrillers to cozy mysteries lead YOU (the audience) through the process of constructing a plot that’s to die for. You come up with character names, motives, and, of course, a murder weapon. We’ll then explain how we think – and what those names and methods might imply for us. You’re a full participant all the way as we draft an outline for the perfect mystery!
