a Parks and Recreation book is set to come out in the fall. I have to say I will probably buy and read this.
“Pawnee: The Greatest Town in America,” a book “written by” Leslie Knope but really worked on by Schur and many other members of the “Parks and Rec” cast and creative team.
As Schur explained it to [Alan Sepinwall], in the “Time Capsule” episode, we see that Leslie has prepared a book on Pawnee’s history, and this is that book - “but the professsional version. From her POV, with contributions from every character and many minor characters. Got contributions from Fred Armisen (who appeared in season two’s “Sister City”), Ben Schwartz (who plays Jean-Ralphio), (Nick) Offerman, Amy (Poehler), and a bunch of others. Part history, part travel guide, (with) sections on raccoons, Eagleton, Joan Calamezzo, Crazy Ira and the Douche — basically everything that’s ever appeared in the show.”
“Pawnee: The Greatest Town in America” won’t come out until October 4 (by which point season 4 will have hopefully begun), but if there’s one thing this delayed season of “Parks and Rec” has taught us, it’s that things having to do with Pawnee are almost always worth the wait.
