The Chicago Writers Association, which has been promoting the idea of a Chicago Literary Hall of Fame for a while now, hosts a fund-raiser tonight at Sheffield’s to help build one.

Deck the Hall features local novelists Don De Grazia, Bayo Ojikutu, and Marcus Sakey reading from the works of HOF-nominated authors (examples below the jump), and there will be a silent auction of collectible Chicago books.
