Chris Faraone began his writing career by free-lancing Hip Hop reviews for
such publications as Yellow Rat Bastard, The Source, the Weekly Dig and the
Boston Herald  before becoming a staff reporter for the Boston Phoenix,
where his coverage of the Occupy movement on both coasts resulted in his
debut book---99 Nights With The 99%.  Katie Gradowski is an organizer with
Occupy Boston, where she focuses on outreach and anti-foreclosure work as
well as the Occupy The T campaign. Her "real job" is in Somerville, where
she helps run a kid's community science workshop and "spends time making
things, tinkering, and taking stuff apart". Betsy Boggia has helped
establish Occupy Natick. She also  has long experience with  grassroots
organizations, political campaigns, local non-profits  (most recently with
Girl's LEAP Self-Defense),  has  been a legislative aide for State Senator
Cheryl Jacques, and a co-founder of the Greater Boston Chapter of the
Million Mom March for sensible gun control.
