Many people are familiar with the little white, purple, and yellow house that sits along the shoreline of Lake Superior in downtown Grand Marais. It's a place many locals and visitors go pick up a new book - whether it's a well-known bestseller or a new-to-them author.
Something that makes Drury Lane stand out from other bookstores, however, is that they have a heavy focus on local authors and north shore-specific reads.
It's not uncommon to find a book signed by a local author (or the opportunity to attend an event with the local author themselves), or to attend one of their monthly book clubs or a community read (in fact, there is a January/February community read event you can join if you haven't already).
If you're in the mood for a new read, you're in luck. Drury Lane staff put together a list of the top 10 bestsellers for 2022, which you can find below.
