Meet the Executives

Sarah Milmine - President

Sarah is a fifth-year arts student majoring in English and History, and working on certificates in Library Studies and Criminology. She hails from Vancouver, British Columbia. She is passionate about developing research methods that bridge the gap between books and technology, and hopes to develop programs for the secondary school system to that end. Sarah can’t decide what genre of literature she enjoys most, and generally reads whatever comes her way, from classics to comic books. When she’s not engaged in scholastic endeavours, Sarah enjoys tinkering with electricity and collecting snails - mutually exclusive activities, of course. She’s got a great sense of humour and is very approachable, so don’t hesitate to ask her any questions!

Favourite books: David Copperfield by Charles Dickens, Mr. Penumbra’s 24 Hour Bookstore by Robin Sloan, and Lolita by Vladimir Nabokov

 

Rebecca Munden - Vice-President

 Rebecca is a fourth-year student at Memorial University, majoring in English and minoring in History with hopes of becoming a lawyer in the near future. Her favourite things include reading, writing, Netflix binges, and her cat. She was born and raised in a small town on the southwest coast of Newfoundland. Rebecca tends to read anything that her friends suggest to her, and often serves as a personal library for others. When she’s not involved with school or trying to maintain a social life, she is usually busy with her weekend writing group, volunteering, or procrastinating all of her term papers.

Favourite books: The Kingkiller Chronicle by Patrick Rothfuss, American Gods by Neil Gaiman, A Song of Ice and Fire by George R.R. Martin, and Lord of the Flies by William Golding
