The Enid Public Library will host author John Mallon and expand the Marquis James Room collection with a generous donation from Mr. Mallon. John Mallon, author of seven historical novels and a cousin of Marquis James, says he spent 20 years researching and collecting material in order to write his book, Marquis James: A Biographer’s Life. Mallon will be at the Enid Public Library to discuss the book and present the library with a sizable materials donation.

“We are grateful for Mr. Mallon’s willingness to share his book, his experience with research and writing, and the extensive research that informed Marquis James: A Biographer’s Life,” said Library Director Theri Ray. “Marquis James is one of many people who grew up in Enid, Oklahoma, and went on to do great things. Marquis James is a fascinating example of Garfield County excellence. Additionally, Mr. Mallon’s visit is a great opportunity to learn from someone who found an ancestor they wanted to know more about and did the research to write a book. Mr. Mallon’s visit should be enlightening for anyone interested in Marquis James or in researching their family history.”
