Best known for his breakout role as Ron Swanson in the acclaimed series Parks and Recreation, Nick will be discussing his newest book, Where the Deer and the Antelope Play: The Pastoral Observations of One Ignorant American Who Loves to Walk Outside. His walking companion, Jeff Tweedy of Wilco, will join him in conversation.

Jeff Tweedy is an American musician, songwriter, author, and record producer best known as the singer and guitarist of the band Wilco. Originally from Belleville, IL, Tweedy has released 20 studio albums across his career.
