Because I do, and I know what I’m watching tonight!

With the 75th anniversary of Gone With the Wind right around the corner, you may notice a lot of programs around town and on television about Georgia’s beloved local legend. Tonight, Georgia Public Broadcasting will air the world premiere of their biography documentary Margaret Mitchell: American Rebel. I borrowed a copy of the DVD from our editor here at Peachtree a week ago — it was so good that I’m tuning in to watch it again!


The documentary features our very own Marianne Walker, author of Margaret Mitchell and John Marsh: The Love Story Behind Gone With the Wind. It airs tonight, Thursday, June 30, at 8 p.m. on GPB! They did a great job of it, so you all should definitely watch with me! After all, Rhett said it himself: “Take a good look my dear. It’s an historic moment you can tell your grandchildren about.”

 PS – A new giveaway!!
This one is easy, peasy. Write me on Twitter (@PeachtreePub) or comment here with something you learned about Margaret Mitchell or your favorite line from Gone With the Wind! I’ll pick a winner at random to receive a copy of Marianne’s great book!

If you don’t live in Georgia or you don’t have a television, keep an eye on the GPB website for great info about Mitchell and snippets of the film. You can still enter the contest too, of course.

I’ll keep the giveaway open until the end of the day on Thursday, July 7 and announce the winner on Friday, July 8!
