Event Details

Join us for a fun and relaxed event with a focus on environmental awareness with local author Dana Klisanin! This is an ideal event for middle graders who are interested in activism, and will consist of familiarizing attendees with Dana’s new book, “Future Hack.” There will be engaging discussion and an activity. We hope you can join us! Parents are welcome to attend with their kiddos.


Genius Cat Books is set to unveiled the much-anticipated middle-grade book Future Hack by trailblazer Dana Klisanin in October 2023. With a mission to inspire young climate activists and immerse them in the world of anticipatory thinking, Future Hack is the captivating first installment of “The Chronicles of G.A.I.A.” series.

Lauded by Publishers Weekly for its “messaging around environmental education and individual activism,” the novel emboldens the next generation to embrace a growth mindset in the face of crises such as climate change in the post-pandemic era.

Future Hack invites readers on an exhilarating journey reflective of the magic found in the Harry Potter series. This sci-fi adventure introduces Lexa Andromeda, a 12-year-old environmental activist and social media influencer who resembles the iconic Greta Thunberg. Lexa joins forces with other young heroes at Thistleton Academy for Highly Creatives and, a time traveler, united in their noble quest to avert a catastrophic future extinction event.

Within the pages of Future Hack, readers will discover deep-seated themes of love, loss, the role of technology in shaping destiny, and a poignant environmental consciousness. Grayscale art by illustrators Melisca Klisanin and Yeyan Xu features throughout. In an age of ecological uncertainty, Future Hack is more than a book; it’s a resounding call to action, challenging us all to envision a brighter, more sustainable future for our fragile planet.

Stay tuned for the highly-awaited release of Future Hack on October 24th. To join the movement and explore a world of anticipatory thinking and environmental action, visit her website and follow her on LinkedIn and X (formerly Twitter).


Featured by Forbes as one of the world’s top female futurists, Dana’s multifaceted career spans from pioneering work in conscious media to global environmental advocacy. As C.E.O. of Evolutionary Guidance Media and Founder of ReWilding: Lab, she’s a bridge between innovative strategies and global well-being.

She participated in the 2023 Stanford Existential Risks Conference; her chapter Existential Risk: From Resilience to Antifragility, which speaks to the ability to grow stronger in the face of crises such as climate change and the recent COVID-19 pandemic, was included in the resulting volume, Intersections, Reinforcements, Cascades: Proceedings of the 2023 Stanford Existential Risks Conference.

Now, Dana introduces Future Hack, the inaugural book in the “Chronicles of G.A.I.A.” series. The series speaks to environmental activism, education, and empowering the next generation. The kid heroes in this innovative series are recruited by the Global Anticipatory Intelligence Agency (aka: G.A.I.A.) to work on behalf of our fragile planet. The novel encourages middle-grade students to think about their futures and champion the planet.
