Book Beginnings: Margaret Mitchell's Gone with the Wind: A Bestseller's Odyssey from Atlanta to Hollywood

Book Beginnings on Friday is a meme hosted by Gilion at Rose City Reader. Anyone can participate; just share the opening sentence of your current read, making sure that you include the title and author so others know what you're reading.

Margaret Mitchell's Gone with the Wind: A Bestseller's Odyssey from Atlanta to Hollywood by Ellen F. Brown and John Wiley Jr.

"Margaret Mitchell's Gone With the Wind has its roots in that Sunday afternoon tradition of visits with the family."

A lot of Ms. Mitchell's interest in and original research into the Civil War was from hearing first-hand accounts of her elders as a child.

It's rare to see her life story. I always see the novel Gone With The Wind. Enjoy.

I loved the book and movie, so it only makes sense to me that I would love learning more about the author. Have a great weekend.

Sounds like this would be a fascinating book, especially for readers who loved Gone With the Wind (me!) I'll read this one.
Here's the link to my Friday post: House Rules.
