I just read that Emily Powell, daughter of current Powell's president, Michael Powell, will be taking over in July.
As any visitor to Portland knows, everyone in our family loves Powell's. In fact, you'd be hard-pressed to find anyone living in the Portland metro area who doesn't love Powell's. I'm glad it's continuing to thrive in this difficult economy, especially for independent bookstores.
The world needs more women at the helm of multimillion $ businesses, so go, Emily!!
