The names of HOLA members and Friends of HOLA are listed below in boldface. To see what other HOLA members are doing currently, click here.

Academy Award-nominated actress Rosie Pérez, shown at right, has just published a memoir. Titled Handbook for an Unpredictable Life: How I Survived Sister Renata and My Crazy Mother and Still Came Out Smiling (And With Great Hair), it is published by Random House and recounts her turbulent childhood and how she became a dancer, then choreographer, then actress. She was profiled in the New York Daily News regarding the memoir. To read the article, click here.
