The 19th Wife

Currently on the New York Times Best Seller list, David Ebershoff’s The 19th Wife was written, in part, making use of materials from the Libraries Special Collections. In the acknowledgments, Ebersohoff writes:

...the Irving Wallace Archive at the Honnold Library at the Claremont Colleges holds a fine collection on Anna Eliza Young; I’m grateful to Mr. Wallace for making his original research available to the public and to Carrie Marsh and the other archivists who maintain it today.

The Libraries have a copy of The 19th Wife for check out in the Braxton collection.
