Southern belle Scarlett O’Hara would be pleased to know she’s in the spotlight, along with her creator. This year marks the 75th anniversary of the publication of Gone with the Wind, Margaret Mitchell’s only novel and a Pulitzer Prize winner. The Atlanta History Center’s Margaret Mitchell House is hosting events in commemoration of the milestone throughout the year.

Kicking off the anniversary-related happenings on February 16 are Ellen F. Brown and John Wiley, Jr., the authors of Margaret Mitchell’s Gone with the Wind: A Bestseller’s Odyssey from Atlanta to Hollywood ($10 for nonmembers, $5 for member; reservations requested). A day-long celebratory extravaganza is taking place on Saturday, May 14, and is included with regular admission.
