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.
There are 27 nominees for the Chicago Literary Hall of Fame; along with usual suspects Nelson Algren, Saul Bellow, Gwendolyn Brooks, Theodore Dreiser, James T. Farrell, Mike Royko, and Studs Terkel there are several worthies you might not expect (hello, Franklin Rosemont!).
The benefit runs from 6:30 to 9:30 PM at Sheffield's, 3258 N. Sheffield. Tickets are $30 online; it's an extra $5 at the door.
