Keep it in the family

Happy news for Portlanders and lovers of good bookstores. The daughter of Michael Powell will continue the family tradition of managing the bookstore. Like most new leaders, she is likely to take the store in some form of new direction, but this outcome is far more attractive than takeover by outsiders of by some firm willing to turn them into just a Border's clone. I hope the Powell's sages are examining the DNA of potential mates for the new boss, with the eventual aim of breeding the Kwisatz Haderach of book selling.
