Danville author and political reporter Mark Curtis has won a "2010 International Book Award" for his book, Age of Obama: A Reporter's Journey with Clinton, McCain and Obama in the Making of the President 2008, which took First Place in the category: "Current Events/Political-Social."
The book was also a finalist in the "Non Fiction Narrative" category.
2008 marked one of the most incredible and suspenseful presidential campaigns in American history. Every week was a cliffhanger. Curtis was there for every dramatic step, from Barrack Obama's upset victory in Iowa; to Hillary Clinton's and John McCain's stunning comeback wins a week later in New Hampshire; and, all the way to the final primary, reporting "live" from Mount Rushmore in South Dakota.
Then it was on to both political conventions and the November election and, finally, the Inauguration. Age of Obama: A Reporter’s Journey… takes you to every key moment, from beginning to end!
Curtis currently splits his work time between Danville, where he runs MarkCurtisMedia, and Providence, Rhode Island, where he is the Weekend Anchor and Chief Political Reporter for WLNE-TV ABC-6. He is currently completing his Doctorate in Educational Leadership at St. Mary’s College of California in Moraga.
