The Phildelphia Inquirer includes novelist Freeman '94 in Philly's lively writing scene
Philadelphia Inquirer staff writer Dianna Marder looks at Philly’s writing community, noting that novelists like Ru Seneviratne Freeman ’94 “did not move here in search of a scene. They were already here, raising children or working in unrelated careers.” Freeman, besides raising three daughters with husband Mark Freeman ’92, is the author of the well-received A Disobedient Girl, about which Marder writes that “admirers of Jhumpa Lahiri and Kiran Desai will savor Freeman’s novel, which juxtaposes events in the lives of several Sri Lankan women, some who are taken in childhood as future housemaids, and others who are their wealthy owner/employers.” View story from The Philadelphia Inquirer, April 15, 2010.
