Dwight Schrute Will Abandon his Beet Farm and Speak at UNT

Rainn Wilson's more than just a great Twitter voice, and his vision extends further than the Schrute family beet farm. Wilson lives a life of civic service through volunteership, social activism and by using his celebrity platform to share good, big ideas via his website and book, SoulPancake.

Yep, he's a busy guy. That won't keep him from visiting UNT on September 19 as part of the university's Distinguished Speaker Series. He'll discuss SoulPancake and his theories on living an enriched, aware existence. He begins the chat at 7 p.m. and closes it up with a book signing at 8 p.m. General admission tickets are available for non-students and range from $25 to $30.
