As the creative force behind shows like “Parks and Recreation” and “The Good Place,” Mike Schur has a gift for crafting communities of people flawed, absurd, and utterly endearing. His book shows the same perspicacity and generosity, while offering the funniest Moral Reasoning 101 class you’ll likely ever take.

Join Duke History professor Adriane Lentz-Smith for a conversation with Schur on what’s so funny about the quest for moral perfection.
