Congratulations to Michelle Bear, assistant manager and soon-to-be owner of Edmonds Bookshop in Edmonds, WA! Congratulations, too, to Mary Kay Sneeringer and David Brewster, who owned the store for twenty years.
The good news broke in the Seattle Times August 18, 2021. As the Edmonds Bookshop team relates in a piece in My Edmonds News, Paul Constant’s profile of the beloved, almost fifty-year-old institution as part of his Neighborhood Reads series turned into a big scoop in the book world, when the current and soon-to-be store owners decided to share the news of the upcoming ownership transition.
As Mary Kay and David move on to retirement and Michelle assumes the responsibilities of ownership, the store seeks to hire a full-time bookseller. You can see more information about the position on our classifieds page.
We’re delighted to know that this bookstore will continue to be in good hands.
