“September, a time of changing seasons. Summer to fall. Baseball to football. No school to school. Most importantly to us, September is the official beginning of Fall Books Season,” the Raven Book Store writes.

“The next few weeks are absolutely packed with great authors and fantastic books, and we hope to see you there!” the Raven Book Store writes.
“You can’t stop the Heartstoppers! Alice Oseman’s series of comics dominates our list this week, with volumes 1, 2, and 3 each making appearances (and 4 isn’t that far behind).”
“Here are this week’s bestsellers. We hope you find them interesting.”
And, “Here are some other links that we hope you find interesting.”
“The Raven was recently awarded Publishers Weekly’s Bookstore of the Year award, a huge honor that we’re very proud of. Believe it or not, however, this was not the first national championship to come to Lawrence this year.”

“The Raven has always had a big mystery section, since day one. … In the past year or so, the amazing booksellers of the Raven have worked to highlight a broader range of genre fiction as well.”
