Vroman's to make guest appearance on 'Parks and Recreation'

August 12, 2011 |  1:03 pm

Vroman's Bookstore will make a guest appearance in the upcoming season of "Parks and Recreation," when Amy Poehler's Leslie Knope has a book signing. Her book, "Pawnee: The Greatest Town in America," will be featured in the show, and will be published Oct. 4 by Hyperion.

Photos of Vroman's dressed up for TV are on the L.A. area filming location-obsessed blog I Am Not a Stalker, which writes:

A display featuring several copies of Pawnee: The Greatest Town in America was set up in the background of the scene and, throughout the day, before filming began, countless Vroman’s customers would walk up and look through it, thinking it was a real item that was for sale. LOL I am dying to know if anyone actually brought a copy up to the cash registers and tried to purchase it!

Blogger Lindsay was encouraged to take photos on the set, and posed on Poehler's podium. Who else took photos of himself posing with Knope's book? Chris Traeger, as he's known on "Parks and Recreation," or as you might call him, Rob Lowe. Here he is holding up a copy of his bestselling memoir, "Stories I Only Tell My Friends."
