Clinton Campaign Trail Runs Through Powell's Books

Shelf Awareness

Yesterday, former President Bill Clinton "made a surprise stop at Portland's famous Powell's Books" before heading to Vancouver, Wash., to campaign for Hillary, KATU reported, adding that Clinton "was joined by Ore. Gov. Kate Brown at the bookstore just after 4 p.m. and stayed for about an hour, browsing and greeting shoppers." Governor Brown announced yesterday she is officially endorsing Hillary Clinton for president.

Clinton bought a copy of A First-Class Temperament: The Emergence of Franklin Roosevelt, 1905-1928 by Geoffrey C. Ward, and "was also gifted a copy of Peter Stark's Astoria, a book about settling Astoria, Ore. in the early 1800s," KATU noted.
