Keith buys history, social science, philosophy, and business books. Once again, he’d like to thank Michelle Obama.
Corie is our sciences and tech buyer, and a self-proclaimed DNA nerd.
Madeline is one of our children’s book buyers, with a focus on YA and middle grade; she also buys world languages and some adult nonfiction. In high school, she was voted “most likely to randomly give an inspirational speech.”
Kathi has worked at Powell’s for decades and knows all too well: too many books, too little time. Sigh!
Jennifer buys books for the sports section. Her three favorite things are books, cats and basketball.
Leah buys for an assortment of subjects including art. She loves making things and is getting better at keeping her houseplants alive.
Tracey is our cookbook and crafts buyer. When not cooking or crafting she can be found reading, probably too close to the flame, in front of her fireplace. Tracey loves bacon. She has set her kitchen on fire only once.
Doug buys mysteries and graphic novels for Powell's, writes rarely published fiction, and lives with a wonderful spouse and a ridiculous dog.

McKenzie is a romance and true-crime junkie! She spends most of her free time reading, knitting, or listening to podcasts.
Kim is the one of the children’s book buyers and adult nonfiction buyers. She loves spending time with her family and their sweet Australian Shepherd.
MaryJo buys literature, science fiction, and horror. She firmly believes in the redemptive power of strong tea.
