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 a new book about our favorite series is now available! 60 Years of Mayberry: A Celebration of The Andy Griffith Show is a collection of essays, recollections, and remembrances released in celebration of the 60th Anniversary of the debut of the classic series.

Edited by Randy Turner, the book includes writings from Dixie Griffith (Andy Griffith’s daughter), George Lindsey Jr. (George “Goober” Lindsey’s son), Bruce Bilson  (Assistant Director on The Andy Griffith Show), LeRoy McNees (Musical guest star on The Andy Griffith Show), Sean Dietrich (Author and Sean of the South Podcast creator), Allan Newsome (Floyd the barber tribute artist and host of the podcast Two Chairs, No Waiting), Tim Bradshaw (Author and Mayberry fan), Chris Grewe (Pastor and devoted fan of The Andy Griffith Show), and Randy Turner (Author and Mayberry historian).

The book is packed with photos (some never published before) and information of interest to all Mayberry fans.

The 192-page paperback sells for $21.95.

Mayberry Firsts: A Compendium of Historical Essays on the Classic Television Series is now available in a heavily revised second edition with new information and more than 20 additional photos. The paperback book is 224 pages and sells for $19.95.


Our third 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’s knowledge of The Andy Griffith Show and the actors’ careers is phenomenal…and just plain fun to read.
– George Lindsey Jr., George “Goober” Lindsey’s son

The calendar includes 365 pages of all-new fun facts about the American classic and sells for $16.95.



Finally, our Andy & Opie t-shirts make great gifts along with our books and calendars. 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.
