Congratulations to AuthorHouse’s Dr. John Carvalho!
Dr. Carvalho, a former Harvard University scholar and the self-published author of The Crisis of Our Time, was awarded the 2017 Albert Nelson Marquis Lifetime Achievement Award by The Marquis Who’s Who for his 25 years of scholarship in the sciences and humanities.
The Marquis Who’s Who has been chronicling the lives of prominent Americans worldwide since 1898. Among the other Albert Nelson Marquis Lifetime Achievement Award winners are actress Linda Carter, former Secretary of State Colin Powell, Berkshire Hathaway CEO Warren Buffett, Apple CEO Tim Cook, and U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg.
“The Albert Nelson Marquis Lifetime Achievement Award is a symbol of a laudable career whereby one has spent much time contributing to the buildup of society rather than its demise,” said Dr. Carvalho about the award. “When we fail to achieve, fail to perform any civic engagement, and fail to keep ourselves informed, we become the artisans of further chaos and hardship rather than a solution to world problems. Our present state of affairs calls on each one of us to do much more, and there is no reason why we cannot. We just need the will to courageously engage the difficulties that we face as a nation and as a planet.”
We first met John a few years ago, when The Crisis of Our Time had been submitted for the Pulitzer Prize, and he’d been nominated “Best Literary Writer” by the Artists in Music Awards (AIMA). We’re thrilled that he’s also been recognized by The Marquis Who’s Who, and couldn’t be prouder that he’s part of the AuthorHouse writer community.
