My First Visit
The Raven BookStore was founded in 1987 in Lawrence, Kansas, where I attended college at The University of Kansas. While my first visit was too long ago to remember the specifics, I’m sure I was drawn to a mystery and the smell of so many books in one place.
Bookstore Window Shopping
The book in the window that most catches my eye is Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine by Gail Honeyman.
Most Recent Purchase
All Things Left Wild by James Wade in 2021 when I was visiting family in neighboring Eudora. It was during COVID-19 and customers couldn’t go in to browse, but I was able to mask up (like they did in 1918) and pick up my order from the sidewalk.
