Mimi Freedman

Mimi is assistant to the Books and Speaking Departments and a true book lover. Although she will read almost anything put in front of her, she is especially drawn to literary fiction and is a sucker for a beautiful sentence or a clever plotline. As an ex-student of Early Modern English, she also loves any book surrounding 18th century witchcraft and will happily chat about the subject for hours.

The most recent books to have blown Mimi’s socks off have been Notes on an Execution by Danya Kukafka, The Song of Achilles by Madeline Miller and Bright Young Women by Jessica Knoll.

When Mimi isn’t at work, you can find her thrift shopping, going to the theatre, or making bowl after bowl of ramen. She fears that one day she may turn into a bowl of broth and noodles, but her love of MSG and soy sauce is too strong to break.
