"Gone With The Wind" by Kathleen Marcaccio -- Historian
Since 1994, Kathleen Marcaccio has presented her program on Margaret Mitchell and Gone With The Wind to hundreds of people in a variety of settings, including libraries, community colleges, retirement communities, historical societies, book clubs, women’s groups, and Civil War Round Tables, as well as at GWTW events.
Marcaccio’s GWTW presentation provides background on author Margaret Mitchell and her Pulitzer Prize-winning novel Gone With The Wind; the 1939 film by the same name; Margaret Mitchell’s post-GWTW life; and Gone With The Wind in popular culture.
Marcaccio holds a B.A. in English and Anthropology and an M.S. in Library Science, both from Wayne State University. She is retired from Gale, Cengage (formerly Gale Research) after 38+ years, last serving as Publication Metadata Program Manager. Marcaccio is a volunteer tour guide for Preservation Detroit, leading tours of the Cultural Center, Midtown Detroit, Yamasaki in the Cultural Center, Historic Ferry Street, and Woodlawn Cemetery. She served on the Friends of Royal Oak Public Library Board for 20 years. She is married; her husband and two adult children indulge and support her GWTW passion wholeheartedly.
