Sonia Jacobson

Part-Time Librarian

Language and literature shaped my personality, imagination and entire inner life like nothing else. It's a constant joy for me to share this love of stories with our visitors!


A dual citizen of France and the USA, Sonia grew up somewhere between the Midwest and Brittany. After obtaining her BA in Philosophy and Modern Languages at Oxford University in 2015, she spent several years in Paris, working in the classical music industry and studying voice & opera at the Conservatoire. She moved to Boston in the fall of 2020, where she now performs as a singer. Sonia is thrilled to be also a part of the French Cultural Center’s team, where she can put her deep love of French literature to use while working as Librarian. When Sonia is not reading or singing, she is most likely rock climbing, gardening or enjoying beer and baked goods with friends.
