The Granville County Genealogical Society starts off  the new year on January 6, 2011 at its monthly meeting with Rev. E. T. Malone as the featured speaker.

The Rev. Canon E. T. Malone, Jr., M.

He was editor of the diocesan newspaper, the Communicant. He is currently chairman of the diocesan Historic Properties Commission, chairman of the Warren County Memorial Library Board of Trustees, trustee of the Cherry Hill Historical Foundation, and Carolina Charter Corporation member.

He was editor of the Harnett County News, editor of the Dunn Dispatch, copy editor and feature writer with the Raleigh Times, and assistant city editor and assistant news editor with the Durham Sun. He holds degrees in English from Campbell University, where he won the Journalism Award and edited the student newspaper, and from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, where his concentration was in Southern literature.

He is the author or co-author of four books, including Literary North Carolina and a volume of poetry titled The View from Wrightsville Beach. His articles, stories, and illustrations have been published in magazines and journals as varied as Our State, St. Andrew’s Review, North Carolina Historical Review, North Carolina Folklore Journal, and the Journal of the American Medical Association. His book reviews and articles on North Carolina literature have appeared in the Durham Morning Herald and the Raleigh News and Observer, and for four years he wrote a weekly syndicated newspaper column reviewing Southern books.
