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.
Well, this is the first bestsellers list featuring data from our new location, and while some things have changed (our A/C works! We’re so much busier!), Lawrence’s interest in all things local has not.
Making their debuts this week are not one but two locally published, neighborhood-focused nonfiction projects, covering East Lawrence and Old West Lawrence.
1. Louise Penny, The Madness of Crowds
2. Meg Heriford, Ladybird, Collected
3. Honoree Fanonne Jeffers, The Love Songs of W.E.B. Du Bois
4. Frank Herbert, Dune
5. Danny Caine, How to Resist Amazon and Why: The Fight for Local Economics, Data Privacy, Fair Labor, Independent Bookstores and a People-Powered Future
6. Krista Barbour & Charles Higginson, Sheltering In Place: Collected Stories from Old West Lawrence
7. Ottessa Moshfegh, My Year of Rest and Relaxation
8. Robin Wall Kimmerer, Braiding Sweetgrass: Indigenous Wisdom, Scientific Knowledge and the Teachings of Plants
