“For the first time since we began tracking bestsellers, four of the top 10 are current staff picks,” the Raven Book Store writes.
“We are pleased to present the Raven’s bestsellers of 2021! I must say, it’s an incredible list.”
“Even with all this fall’s big hits, big new releases and even a few new classics, nobody had the numbers to unseat the mighty ‘Ladybird, Collected.’ That’s just fine with us,” the Raven Book Store writes of this week’s bestsellers.
“This one was no contest — Nikole Hannah-Jones’ monumental ‘The 1619 Project’ sold twice as many books as any other on the list.”
In her new book, “Constructing the Outbreak: Epidemics in Media and Collective Memory,” Dr. Katherine A. Foss uses 1918 Lawrence as a case study in the role of media and how popular narratives form around major diseases.
After taking a year off due to COVID-19, the Lawrence Old-Fashioned Christmas Parade is back and looks to be bigger and better than ever. Even its route has been extended by two extra blocks.
“We’ve never seen anything quite like how many people want to read ‘Dune’ right now.”
Nearly everything on this week’s bestseller list is Kansas-related!
Next week, 17 KU and Lawrence-based groups will come together for a series titled 51 Years OUT! to celebrate more than half a century of local LGBTQ+ pride.
Harold Hill returns this weekend with his timeless message of hope and the importance of community when the Lawrence Arts Center joins with the Lawrence City Band to bring “The Music Man, Concert Version” to South Park.
