Upcoming Chalk Talk in Mount Airy, NC!

By Jeremy Meltingtallow

Barney Google and Snuffy Smith cartoonist John Rose will be doing a “Snuffy Smith” Chalk Talk and book signing at 1:00 p.m.  at the Public Library in Mount Airy, N.C., also known as “Mayberry, N.C.” since it is the hometown of Andy Griffith and was the inspiration for the town of Mayberry on “The Andy Griffith Show.”


The library is located at 145 Rockford Street in Mount Airy, N.C..  John is also an editorial cartoonist and will show examples of his editorial cartoons, including his touching editorial cartoon tributes to George Lindsey and Andy Griffith that he drew upon their deaths.

In his chalk talk, John will talk about his career as the Barney Google and Snuffy Smith cartoonist, show samples of his cartoon work and draw some of the comic strip’s most popular characters for the audience.   After his chalk talk, he will sign copies of his book, The Bodacious Best Of Snuffy Smith.

For more information, call the library at (336) 789-5108.
