Note from the Times: This bestseller list comes to us straight from The Raven Book Store in Lawrence. See other editions of the list here.

This week’s bestseller list has plenty of new faces, like Casey McQuiston’s eagerly awaited followup to Red White & Royal Blue and Clint Smith’s amazing new history of slavery.

By far the fastest seller of the week is the new children’s book from Kansas District 3 U.S. Rep. Sharice Davids, thanks in large part to her fantastic author event with Kansas State Rep. Christina Haswood. You can still watch the replay here!
