Parks and Recreation Is Getting a Book


While you spent all this time waiting on a Season 4 renewal for Parks and Recreation, its writers have been crafting something you didn't even know you wanted: a book! Pawnee: The Greatest Town in America will be out October 4, and though fictional character Leslie Knope gets the author credit, it's mostly written by co-creator Mike Schur. "Got contributions from Fred Armisen (who appeared in Season 2's "Sister City"), Ben Schwartz (who plays Jean-Ralphio), (Nick) Offerman, Amy (Poehler), and a bunch of others," Schur told HitFix. "Part history, part travel guide, sections on raccoons, Eagleton, Joan Calamezzo, Crazy Ira and the Douche — basically everything that's ever appeared in the show." No word yet on whether there will be a version of the book for cats, too. [HitFix]
