Pawnee : The Greatest Town in America

If you are a devotee to the TV show Parks and Recreation, this book needs no introduction, and will only allow you to wallow inpawnee all things Pawnee.  If you’ve no clue and still could use a laugh, treat yourself (quoting Donna and Tom) to this hilarious send up of the fictional Indiana town.

Find out what makes Pawnee tick – from its turbulent history to its present day glory (as it were), as seen by its biggest advocate Leslie Knope, the deputy director of the Parks and Recreation department of Pawnee.  You’ll learn about the earliest settlers of the town, local legends, the infamous Pawnee/Eagleton rivalry, the hot spots to eat, drink, and dance, and the nefarious background of the Sweetums empire, the largest employer in Pawnee.

Leslie’s co-workers make guest appearances here as well.  Read about Ron Swanson’s commune with nature (think whiskey and venison) and April Ludgate’s take on what is cool about Pawnee (something to do with the airport).

Approach this book with an open mind and be ready to laugh.  As mentioned above, if you are familiar with Parks and Recreation, this book will be a sweet indulgence.  If not, it’s a great introduction to the world of Pawnee.
