Lots of new faces on this week’s bestseller list, which (I think) is the first week to not feature Braiding Sweetgrass since the list began.
The most exciting new face is Lawrence poet Brian Daldorph, whose University Press of Kansas book Words is a Powerful Thing chronicles his decades teaching creative writing at the Douglas County jail. It’s a powerful project and it makes a strong No. 1 debut on the strength of a wonderful Raven virtual event.
