Powell’s Books on CBS Saturday Morning


“I think there’s still a hunger for reading, for the print book, for something you hold in your hand and take with you,” says Emily Powell, owner and president of Powell’s Books in Portland, Oregon, about the struggles independent bookstores face today in this CBS Saturday Morning interview with Michelle Miller.

Joseph Han in Conversation With Gene Kwak


“I had to confront the page, and at times it felt like I was staring directly at the heart and face of the Korean DMZ.” In this Powell’s Books virtual event, Joseph Han reads from his debut novel, Nuclear Family (Counterpoint, 2022), and speaks with author Gene Kwak about the process of writing a magical realist story and the ways in which every Korean American story is a ghost story. Han’s novel is featured in Page One in the July/August issue of Poets & Writers Magazine.


Richard Zenith on Pessoa
