Book Vs Movie
“Gone With the Wind”
The Margaret Mitchell Pulitzer Prize-Winning Novel Vs the David O. Selznick Film
Fiddly dee! The Margos are feeling the vapors as we finally tackle Margaret Mitchell’s classic novel Gone With the Wind and this time, us two Yankees admit we need some help understanding the history of the book and its author. So for the first time ever–we asked another podcaster to join us for this discussion–Alicia from the Trashy Divorces podcast!
Alicia is a sassy southern bred, Atlanta-based podcaster who loves this book and has tons to say about the iconic author. The Margos found the material to be challenging (to say the least!) so we really wanted to give the fans the opportunity to hear from a Mitchell Stan.
Now the big question, which version did the Margos like better? Check out the link below to hear for yourself!

Who do you become when you have nothing left to lose?
There is something Poe Blythe, the seventeen-year-old captain of the Outpost’s last mining ship, wants far more than the gold they tear from the Serpentine River.
Poe has vowed to annihilate the river raiders who robbed her of everything two years ago. But as she navigates the treacherous waters of the Serpentine and realizes there might be a traitor among her crew, she must also reckon with who she has become, who she wants to be, and the ways love can change and shape you. Even—and especially—when you think all is lost.
Ally Condie, the international bestselling author of the Matched trilogy, returns with an intricately crafted and emotionally gripping story of one young woman’s journey to move beyond the grief and anger that control her and find the inner strength to chart her own course.
The Last Voyage of Poe Blythe is one of the most anticipated YA novels of 2019 author Ally Condie will be going on a national tour to promote this Spring & Summer.
