Instructor: Kathleen Marcaccio

We will explore how Margaret Mitchell’s best-selling novel Gone with the Wind was turned into the 1939 Oscar-winning film produced by David O. Selznick, and how the film swept the country, including its premiere in Detroit and some local ties to the film. A display of vintage and contemporary memorabilia accompanies the presentation and will be available for viewing 30 minutes before the presentation.

About the Presenter: Kathleen Marcaccio holds a B.A. in English and anthropology and an M.S. in library science, both from Wayne State University. Now retired, she worked for Cengage Learning (formerly Gale Research) for nearly 39 years in editorial and data analyst roles supporting their electronic information products. For more than 50 years, she has collected memorabilia, researched and shared her interest in Gone with the Wind (GWTW) via talks, tours, exhibits and email alerts. In 2012 she received the inaugural Windie of the Year award by the Marietta Gone with the Wind Museum for sharing her love of GWTW with fellow enthusiasts and classic film fans.

By fortunate coincidence, this film is planned to be shown in select local theaters beginning April 7th—look for it!
