Even as a small child, Margaret "Peggy" Mitchell was a lover of great books. Her father belonged to the 1867 Young Men's Library Association, an organization charged with the development of Atlanta's library services. Margaret continued the family tradition, reading everything she could get her hands on. When she'd read all of the books within a 50-mile radius, she began to write her own story, Gone with the Wind. See her much-loved typewriter, library card, and GWTW galley proofs at the Atlanta-Fulton Public Library.
