The Wind as Literature – Q&A With Melissa Maday
When did you first read GWTW/what were your initial impressions?
Um, could any week have been MORE eventful than last week? Not only did The Heroine’s Bookshelf win a Colorado Book Award, but I was invited to guest host #litchat this Friday and Felicity won a lovely copy of GWTW.
This week’s prize is one you might not have on your bookshelf…a copy of Molly Haskell’s Frankly My Dear: Gone With the Wind Revisited. Just comment on a blog post this week to win…and watch for a special bonus giveaway later this week! And now, please welcome Melanie Fishbane with a few realizations about GWTW’s prickly heroine.
Wow. What amazing conversation! Keep it up…all comments this week will be entered to win a fabulous first-edition-style hardcover of the book of the hour, Gone With the Wind. Speaking of GWTW, have you checked out How We Do Run On: A Gone With the Wind Scrapbook yet? It’s the blog I can’t live without, chock full of ruminations, doppelganger fashions, and in-depth inquiries into the world of the Wind. Please welcome Claudia, one of the dynamic duo behind the blog, for a very quotable guest post!
“As God Is My Witness…” – A Quote for Hard Times
Wow. Great responses and conversation this week! Remember, all comments this week are entered to win a lovely first-edition-style hardcover of Gone With the Wind…in my opinion the most beautiful and readable of the available editions. Today I’d like you to welcome Sarah Seltzer, an amazing journalist/feminist voice/Janeite and reader you may know as fellowette on Twitter. I’ve had the privilege of getting to know her a little better through the world of the Internets, and when I decided to do Margaret Mitchell Month I knew I had to ask her opinion on an oh-so-problematic read. Welcome, Sarah!
