Popular speaker Dr. Elliott Engel returns to TCL . Master of Mayberry: The Miraculous Life of Andy Griffith
While it is true that he was a brilliant movie and Broadway stage actor, Andy Griffith is a Hollywood immortal because of THE ANDY GRIFFITH SHOW television show which ran from 1960 to 1968. Professor Engel not only analyzes Andy’s astonishing early life which led to his television triumph, but he also reveals little-known fascinating facts about the show’s production and its enduring and endearing fame.
Using anecdotes, analysis and large doses of humor, historian Elliot Engel brings to life this most universal of topics. He earned his Ph.D. as a Woodrow Wilson Fellow at UCLA. Engel has written 10 books, multiple plays and a PBS series on Charles Dickens. For his scholarship and teaching, he received North Carolina’s Adult Education Award, NC State’s Alumni Professorship and the Victorian Society’s Award of Merit. Most recently, for his 30 years of academic work and service in promoting Charles Dickens, he was nominated and inducted into the Royal Society of Arts in England.
