The Archdiocese of Atlanta, Georgia, has received a 50% share in the literary rights to the novel Gone With the Wind.

Gone With the Wind, published in 1936, received the Pulitzer Prize and became the basis for the classic film of the same name, released in 1939. The novel remains popular today. The archdiocese will receive half of the royalties from remaining sales.

The gift to the archdiocese was part of a bequest from the late Joseph Mitchell, a nephew of the Margaret Mitchell, the book’s author.
