Andrea Y. Griffith is the owner of Browsers Bookshop, an independent bookstore in downtown Olympia, WA in business since 1935. She’s lived in Olympia with her family since 2010. Her husband, Telfer, is an anesthesiologist and grew up in Olympia. She has two tween daughters: Cate is in 6th grade and Jane is in 4th grade. At the beginning of COVID, George the labradoodle went to live with Aunt Liz and is truly the happiest version of himself. Annie stayed with us and has decided she much prefers to be the top (only) dog in the house.

Andrea is a former medical librarian with a Master’s in Library and Information Sciences from San Jose State University. She completed her undergraduate degrees in History and English at Northwest Nazarene University in Nampa, ID where she met her husband. They lived in Southern California and New York City before settling in Olympia. They are planning to never leave.

Andrea has blogged off and on (lately way more off than on) since 2004. She plans to write more about her family, books, good food, her old house and living in the Pacific Northwest.
