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.

The people of Lawrence seem to be excited for Hanif Abdurraqib’s book tour stop on April 16 at Liberty Hall: they’ve helped him debut at No. 1 with his amazing new book, “There’s Always This Year.”

Further evidence of the above: if we counted non-book merchandise in our bestseller lists, the No. 1 overall would actually be our new “What Would Hanif Abdurraqib Do?” sticker. Fear not: free tickets for the event are still available

Elsewhere on the list, children everywhere, including my 5-year-old son, are welcoming the arrival of the latest “Dog Man” book, debuting at No. 3.


1.     Hanif Abdurraqib, There’s Always This Year: On Basketball and Ascension

2.     Percival Everett, James

3.     Dav Pilkey, Dog Man: The Scarlet Shedder: A Graphic Novel (Dog Man #12)

4.     Frank Herbert, Dune

5.     Kristin Hannah, The Women

6.     Sosuke Natsukawa, The Cat Who Saved Books

7.     Nita Prose, The Maid

Papaws are found in native woodlands as an understory tree, meaning that they only grow 10-20 feet tall, in the shade of the much taller trees that make up the dominant overstory canopy. Papaw’s chocolate colored blossoms can be found right now, hanging like bells on the branches.
