GWTW Expert Herb Bridges Speaking at Newnan Library On May 16

From Forrest Schultz: One of the world's greatest authorities on Gone With The Wind lives in Coweta County: Herb Bridges of Sharpsburg. Over the years Bridges has spoken many, many times about GWTW (and related subjects) at many different venues including radio and television interviews.

The next opportunity to hear Bridges will be the address he will giving at the Newnan-Coweta Public Library, which recently changed its name to the A. Mitchell Powell, Jr. Library. Here is the library's press release about this event they are sponsoring:

The library is offering a special opportunity for the community to learn about a locally owned collection of distinctive movie posters. The owner, Sharpsburg resident Herb Bridges, will present a program at the library on Friday, May 16, at 11:00 am.

Bridges will show examples as he talks about his collection, which consists of original-art posters from the 1930s and 1940s.

The library program coincides with the airing of a television special about Bridges and his poster collection. This Georgia Public Broadcasting program will air four times in May on GPB Television:
• May 14 — 9:00 pm
• May 16 — 7:00 pm
• May 18 — 4:00 pm — midnight

Information about the library: or 770-253-3625.
