Historian, Kathy Wilson, will be at the library to discuss the book Gone with the Wind...
Scarlett, Rhett, Ashley—mention their names and almost everyone knows who and what you’re talking about. Why? How is it that a story so blatantly racist, so regionally specific with such stereotyped characters should be one of the most famous books of the 20th century? This program investigates how the Lost Cause, Victorian social attitudes, and Margaret Mitchell’s own family history all served as the inspiration for a book that has remained popular for more than 80 years.
