Vroman’s to Play Midwestern Bookstore on Parks and Recreation

Southern California’s oldest bookstore is going to guest star on NBC’s hit series this fall. Blogger Lindsay of I Am Not a Stalker stumbled upon film crews last week at her beloved Vroman’s, and was able to snap some photos of the set. She learned that in the upcoming season, Amy Poehler’s character Leslie Knope publishes a book, “Pawnee: The Greatest Town in America,” which will also be published IRL on October 4 by Hyperion.

Sadly, Lindsay did not take any sneak peek photos of the books contents. So we’ll just have to be patient.

Vroman’s will serve as the setting for a book signing by the plucky Knope. Crews had midwesternized the bookstore down to a palm tree outside, which was dressed with fake bark and leaves to resemble a variety native to the area.
