Join Unabridged Bookstore in conjunction with The Music Box Theatre as we play host to sensational funny man Nick Offerman in support of his forthcoming book, PADDLE YOUR OWN CANOE. This will be an amazing home-coming for Offerman as he returns to the city that gave him his start. Do not miss the event of the Fall.
"Parks and Recreation" actor Nick Offerman shares his humorous fulminations on life, manliness, meat, and much more in his first book.
Growing a perfect moustache, grilling red meat, wooing a woman--who better to deliver this tutelage than the always charming, always manly Nick Offerman, best known as "Parks and Recreation"'s Ron Swanson? Combining his trademark comic voice and very real expertise in woodworking--he runs his own woodshop--"Paddle Your Own Canoe" features tales from Offerman's childhood in small-town Minooka, Illinois--"I grew up literally in the middle of a cornfield"--to his theater days in Chicago, beginnings as a carpenter/actor and the hilarious and magnificent seduction of his now-wife Megan Mullally. It also offers hard-bitten battle strategies in the arenas of manliness, love, style, religion, woodworking, and outdoor recreation, among many other savory entrees.
A mix of amusing anecdotes, opinionated lessonsand rants, sprinkled with offbeat gaiety, "Paddle Your Own Canoe" will not only tickle readers pink but may also rouse them to put down their smart phones, study a few sycamore leaves, and maybe even hand craft (and paddle) their own canoes.
Want to have a whole night of Offerman? Purchase tickets for afterwards when Nick will introduce DEAD MAN. (Tickets to the book event do not get you in to the movie screening. They're seperate.)
Am I really going to get to meet Nick Offerman?!
Yes. Yes you will. He will be hilarious. He will sign your book.
What's he going to do?
He's going to sing songs. He's going to tell some jokes. He's going to read from his book. He will answer some of your questions.
Will Nick sign all of my Parks and Recreation stuff/prop memorabilia/tray of bacon?
Nick will only be signing his book at this event. That's why this is a book event, silly.
