I told you a month and a half ago that the owner of Queen Anne Books was looking to sell the business. There's a happy ending to this story: QAB just Tweeted:
Secret revealed: the new owner's name is Katharine Hershey. She's a regular customer and she'll be taking over as owner mid-month...Watch for a letter from the new owner in the May in-store flyer.
This is great news for Queen Anne, and it's happy news for Seattle's book culture, too. Hopefully I'll get a chance to talk to Hershey about her new purchase in the weeks to come.
