Fans of the Leslie Knope-led universe, Parks and Recreation, remember mustachioed Ron Swanson (Nick Offerman) as the epitome of manliness: a guy who could down a bottle of scotch in his woodshed and emerge, bright-eyed and bushy-tailed, with a meticulously crafted canoe in hand.

Turns out, much of the woodwork featured on the show came from Offerman’s own business, the appropriately named Offerman Woodshop, which the actor and accomplished woodworker has worked out of for 15 years.

Offerman takes readers on a journey of how-tos and life lessons in a new book about that shop, Good Clean Fun: Misadventures in Sawdust at Offerman Woodshop. He’ll bring the memoir to a reading and signing at Mesa Arts Center, One East Main Street, at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, October 25.

Admission packages are $42 for single entry or $50 for two people; the ticket includes a hardcover copy of Good Clean Fun. Visit for tickets.
