Quimby's celebrates the release of Sin: A Deadly Anthology, a new collection of short stories by The Chicago Contingent that examine the difference between "right" and "wrong." Among the local writers appearing and reading their stories tonight will be A.C. Frieden, Julia Borcherts, and Dana Kaye, plus several others. The authors will also ask trivia questions that could land you a neat-o prize.
