ABOUT THE OWNERS
Friends for over 14 years, Emily and Alicia always dreamed of opening a bookstore together when they retired. Emily managed Page 42 under previous ownership, with the intention of leaving when she graduated from Gonzaga. When the previous owners offered to sell, Emily jumped on the chance, and immediately asked Alicia and her husband Jacob to join her on this earlier-than-expected entrepreneurship opportunity.
Now they are a dream team that is determined to distribute books throughout our community!
Emily, Alicia, Jacob, Samuel, and Alexander are pictured donating books to Little Free Libraries across Spokane
