Vroman’s Bookstore, an independent bookstore in Pasadena, will be appearing on season four of the NBC series, Parks and Recreation. According to Jacket Copy, the bookseller will host an author event headlined by Leslie Knope, a parks department bureaucrat played by Amy Poehler.
Hyperion will release the actual title in paperback format in October. Poehler’s character wrote Pawnee: The Greatest Town in America, a 240-page humor book contains illustrations, photographs and commentary from all of the show’s characters.
Here’s more from NBC.com: “Each chapter will explore a different aspect of the fictional town’s history and expand upon events hinted at in the series, such as: the time the whole town was on fire, its long list of ridiculous town slogans, and the ongoing raccoon infestation. Knope, a resident of Pawnee since her childhood, provides all of the research and comical insights into this Midwestern town that fans have grown to love.”
