“I am very excited about bringing out my new book Family Affair Scrapbook,” said Garver. “The colorful book is a pleasing pictorial pastiche of treasured memorabilia and text about my Emmy-nominated and award-winning classic sitcom. My show has meant so much to so many people. Many fans grew up on this warm-hearted dramedy and newer generations are discovering it for the first time on such channels as Decades or platforms like Amazon Prime and Roku.”

Garver went on to say that Family Affair was one of the first series in color when it debuted in 1966. The stories, the humor, the style all remain relevant today. She is proud that the cherished sixties show appeals today to a wide audience who can sit back, relax, and sip a taste of comfort and nostalgia.

No stranger to the desert region, Garver owned a condominium in Palm Springs for 30 years; received a Golden Palm Star on the Palm Spring Walk of Stars; functioned as a consultant with the Palm Springs Chamber of Commerce; interviewed celebrities on her local show called Star Watch; and has many friends, including her brother, who all reside in the Palm Springs area.

“I look forward to seeing fans and friends at Just Fabulous on December 5, reliving our fun past experiences, and creating new ones,” said Garver. “It is a fantastic way to kick off the 2021 Holiday season to buy autographed copies of my book for themselves or to give away as gifts.”
