Elana Freeland, Author of the Sub Rosa America Series

Saturday, April 4th at 3pm

Orca is excited to welcome Olympia author Elana Freeland back to the store on this April afternoon. Elana will be reading from the fifth and final book in her Sub Rosa America series: From Trinity to Trinity.

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 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, en route to where President John F. Kennedy was shot down like a dog . . .
