Arletta is a proud Seattlite, who is, by an overwhelming majority vote, the hippie activist of the family. She sampled civil disobedience in 7th grade and hasn’t stopped fighting for what’s fair & right since. Often having 5 books going at the same time, booksellers see her coming and rejoice. When she’s not working for The HPA, she is cuddling with her cat and causing trouble with the Instigators, the Washington HPA chapter.

Happy Birthday Andrew!!

We hope your Birthday is filled with good friends, great times, and all of the warmth and spirit you bring to each and every one of us, everyday!
