Who We Are

Emily wears many hats. Both figuratively and literally. She co-owns Dog Ear Books in Downtown Russellville with her mother, Pat Young. When not slingin’ books she also owns a retro arcade that has a full service coffee shop. When deciding to open up both businesses there was no doubt as to where they’d be located. “There was no other option than being downtown. With the Art Walks, concerts and overall vibe, it’s the only place I’d want to set up shop.” She’s a team leader with 1 Million Cups and has been active with the group that is bringing a dog park to Russellville. When not working she likes to read as many books as possible, cuddle her dogs, Ampersand and Max, and watch crime documentaries on Netflix.
