Owner, new CEO of Powell’s Books see strength in brick and mortar

“It’s tough to think about how people will read in 50 years when you’re worrying about what they’ll read tomorrow. So after just a couple of years as chief executive of Powell’s Books, Emily Powell — granddaughter of the bookseller’s founder — told employees last month she would step down and focus on the Portland company’s long-term strategy in a quickly changing market. Powell remains the third-generation owner of Powell’s Books, having effectively taken over running the company from her father, Michael Powell, in 2012.” (via OregonLive.com)
