Winter Shack is pleased to invite you to our 2nd installment of our third season with Kashana Cauley, Colin Dickey, and Kenya (Robinson). Kashana will read The Electric City, a fictional story about a group who buys the city of Detroit with lottery winnings, Colin Dickey will read Unhousing, an essay about foreclosed homes as haunted houses, and Kenya (Robinson) will surprise us!
Kashana Cauley is a native Wisconsinite who lives in Brooklyn. The Atlantic, Buzzfeed, Catapult, Esquire, and McSweeney’s Internet Tendency have published her essays, fiction, and humor.

His work has also appeared in Cabinet, The Believer, LA Review of Books, and he is a regular contributor to Lapham’s Quarterly. His book Ghostland, a cultural history of haunted places in America, is forthcoming in October 2016.
Kenya (Robinson), as she prefers to write her name, is a Brooklyn-based artist who addresses popular culture in her work, merging themes of mass consumerism with notions of social consciousness as well as viewpoints on cultural standards and constructs.
