Margaret Mitchell (1900)

After working as a journalist, Mitchell spent 10 years writing her only novel: Gone with the Wind, a romantic, panoramic portrait of the American Civil War and Reconstruction periods from the white Southern point of view. The book, which earned Mitchell the Pulitzer Prize, is one of the most popular novels in the history of American publishing, and its film adaptation was also extraordinarily successful. Whose stories gave Mitchell insight into the Civil War-era South? More...

Those 'some people' should be banned.

ETA - it is a story, for goodness sake. A story of the times from a certain POV. It is not like a flag being flown. Christopher, she might support banning the flag if she were alive now.

EVEN IF YOU HAVEN’T READ THE BOOK, YOU MIGHT HAVE HEARD THE LAST LINE: “TOMORROW IS ANOTHER DAY.”
That was also the tentative title. Mitchell also considered calling it Bugles Sang True or Not in Our Stars. The title she finally decided upon comes from a poem called Non Sum Qualis Eram Bonae sub Regno Cynarae by Ernest Dowson:

“I have forgot much, Cynara! gone with the wind,
Flung roses, roses riotously with the throng,
Dancing, to put thy pale, lost lilies out of mind"
