By The Book, Bookmarks
Meet Emily Gonzalez, MFA Writing for Children & Young Adults ‘23
Coming from Sugar Land, Texas, Emily is a writer and book lover who always used anything from receipts, envelopes, and pens to hold her place in her next read. With the help of her younger sisters, she came up with the concept of resin-based bookmarks that resembled the book she was reading for the week. In the past year, Emily and her sisters have created a small business known as By the Book Bookmarks which allows them to get their creative minds talking about what books are on the shelves and why their designs are so popular. With their new business, now other readers can accessorize their current or favorite read with a bookmark made for the reader, by the book.
