EMILY BERGE, Marketing Assistant

 

Emily Berge is a graduate of New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts with a degree in film. After giving up on her childhood dream of being a mermaid, Emily has worked in a variety of storytelling environments. She founded and ran the personalized used book subscription box service, BookBag. She previously interned for the literary department of 20th Century Fox, Random House Studio, and Indian Paintbrush, as well as working in television programming for Viacom. She also worked as a bookseller at an independent bookstore in Princeton, NJ and still enjoys alphabetizing books in her free time. Though a diehard Midwesterner, she now lives in a spooky neighborhood in New Jersey. She thinks books are best read with a flashlight under the covers on a dark and stormy night. Photo © Spencer Thielmann
