Elana Freeland will be reading at Orca Booksfrom her newest fiction, The Sub Rosa America Series.
Told from the perspective of 2019, when all the Earth is convulsing and the United States of America is collapsing due either to Nature taking back her own, or to a HAARP-driven error, or to a purposeful Tesla sabotage to force a new beginning. Sub Rosa America and the Fall of the New Atlantis is the occult history of the United States since November 22, 1963, a history we all could have read years ago as the Mayan chronicler wrote it if we’d been on Route 66 cruising through a quantum Time field . . ..
Elana Freeland came of political age during the COINTELPRO decade of Vietnam, street riots, political assassinations, and all-night rap sessions about the downfall of the Establishment. Researching Sub Rosa America included discovering how deeply her US Navy father was enmeshed with the very military-industrial complex she was writing about, and like the characters in the book, learning how every major event and personality in the United States political establishment over the past forty years is tied in one way or another to the assassination of John F. Kennedy in Dallas. She has a BA in creative writing and wrote her Master’s thesis on historiography. Having written for progressive causes all her life, she also ghostwrites.
