Welcome to Liberty Grove Press LLC. We are a publisher dedicated to publishing books about the classic television series The Andy Griffith Show.
We are excited to announce that our second annual Mayberry Day-by-Day Flip Book Calendar is now available. This daily desk calendar has a new fact each day. Not just a random fact, but a fact that occurred on the date it is shown. The calendar is designed to be used throughout the year. When done, the easel can be removed, if desired, and the publication can be kept as a reference book.
We were especially honored to have someone very special to us write a blurb for use on the front and back covers.
“Randy Turner has captured the heart and soul of Mayberry in this marvelous calendar. My dad would love it! I look forward to turning the page each day to see what happened in the life of Mayberry’s finest.”
– Dixie Griffith, Andy Griffith’s daughter
The calendar includes 366 pages (2020 is a Leap Year, after all!) of all-new fun facts about the American classic. The calendar sells for $16.95.
We are also pleased to have recently introduced our first traditional book, Mayberry Firsts: A Compendium of Historical Essays on the Classic Television Series. The book is a collection of over 70 short-form essays. Each essay initially discusses a “first” in the series, but it is definitely not a simple checklist of events. Each event is used as a springboard to delve deeper into the series and present background facts about the show in the process.
The paperback book is 224 pages and sells for $19.95.
Our Andy & Opie t-shirts have proved quite popular and are always available. The Andy & Opie t-shirt is black with white, silk-screened lettering of the names of many of the core members of The Andy Griffith Show during the black and white seasons.
Finally, I was both honored and humbled to be the recipient of the 2019 Mayberry Friendship Award at the annual meeting of The Andy Griffith Show Rerun Watchers Club at Mayberry Days. All I can say is I truly appreciate it.
