Christian Activities publisher, Kathryn Darden, will appear at Pages Book Store for two book signings for her book The Mayberry Poem: A Tribute to Mayberry during this year’s Mayberry Days festivities in Mt. Airy, North Carolina.
The first signing will take place on Friday, September 22,
from noon to 1 p.m. (right after the Mayor’s Proclamation). On Saturday, September 23 from 10:30 a.m. until noon (right after the Mayberry Day’s Parade), Darden will autograph books again at Pages.
Mayberry Days is a festival for the whole family with activities and events for the fans to those who long for the days when life was simple and the Sheriff didn’t carry a gun. Enjoy a bottle of pop while playing checkers, relax to music from many local bands playing the same songs that Andy grew up with in Mount Airy and be sure to get your picture with the TV Land statue of Andy & Opie. There is so much to do during the festival, but there is always time to slow down and enjoy what Mayberry means to you.
The Mayberry Days Information Station will be set up on the grounds of the Andy Griffith Playhouse all day Friday and Saturday to assist visitors. Come join us and say “Hey!”
