Happy Birthday Andy Griffith!

On this date in 1926, Andy Griffith was born in Mount Airy, NC.  He was a successful actor, television producer, Southern gospel singer, and writer.  Griffith is best known for being the lead actor in two series, "The Andy Griffith Show", 1960-1968, and "Matlock", 1986-1995.  Though Griffith died in 2012 of a heart attack, his legacy lives on through his wonderful shows and acting.

In "I Appreciate It", author Jim Clark collaborated with Andy Griffith to write a memoir on his life and career.  In "Mayberry 101", Neal Brower gives a review and behind-the-scenes look at dozens of episodes in "The Andy Griffith Show".

Interested in learning more?  Then please check out these books at your local library or bookstore!  Better yet, why not watch an episode or two of "The Andy Griffith Show" or "Matlock" on television today?  Either way, I guarantee you will not regret it!  Happy reading (and watching)!
