"A red herring is a “false clue,” used by writers the way magicians use sleight of hand—the goal is to distract readers from what’s really going on. When done well, red herrings add complexity to plots and intrigue to stories. In this lively panel, you’ll hear how authors who write in various mystery genres, from hard boiled and noir, to traditional and children's, use red herrings into their plots. These distinguished writers will discuss which red herrings they use and how they weave them into their narratives to create engaging and ingenious puzzles." - From NY Public Library
