Bataan journal topic of reading at PV Library Nov. 9
Excerpts from the journal of the late Clarence G. Zealor, who survived the Bataan Death March in the Pacific Theater during World War II, will be the subject of a reading Nov. 9.
Zealor, father of Prescott Valley Town Councilwoman Mary Mallory, kept a graphic journal about experiences as a prisoner of war of the Japanese. Mallory did not find out about her father's wartime experience until after his death, and honored him March 25 by walking 14 miles during the 23rd annual Bataan Memorial Death March at the White Sands Missile Range near Las Cruces, N.M.
Mallory has made copies of her father's journal. Elaine Jordan, a retired Protestant minister and high school teacher, will read excerpts from the journal at 3 p.m., Nov. 9, during a Veterans Day program in the Prescott Valley Library auditorium, 7401 E. Civic Circle.
Jordan received an award from the San Francisco branch of American Pen Women, Bayou Magazine and the California Writers Club for her memoir "Mrs. Ogg Played the Harp: Memories of Church and Love in the High Desert."
