Seay Administration Building at Centenary College. Refreshments will be available at 6:30 p.m. Evans has won eight Emmy Awards for his entertaining and informative weather reporting. In addition to his television broadcasting duties, he does the weather for RadioDisney, ESPN Radio, WGCH-AM, WPLJ-FM and appears on ABC radio in major markets throughout the United States, as well as filling in on Good Morning America. As a senior on-air weather personality, Evans has written and produced numerous documentaries on hurricanes and severe weather. In the course of his research, he has flown in “Hurricane Hunter” aircraft during major storms. He was presented with the annual Outstanding Meteorologist Award by the National Weather Service for his research and reporting efforts. His appearances on Good Morning America and Live with Regis and Kelly, as well as national radio reports, have made Evans renowned for his entertaining and energetic weather coverage. In 2011, Evans received an honorary Doctorate in Letters of Humanity from Dowling College. Evans’ debut novel Category 7 was published in 2008 and became a New York Times bestseller. Dry Ice is his third novel written with co-author Marianna Jameson, which delves into technology of weather manipulation to show how it could be used for corporate gain …to the detriment of the fragile environment. It seamlessly weds scientific fact with an exciting story of believable characters and forgotten romance. “From one weatherman to another — Bravo Bill!” says Dave Price, of CBS’ The Early Show. “'Dry Ice' combines science fiction, science fact and great writing to create a weather-thriller. Don’t believe it? Just read a chapter and try to put it down!” This event is free and open to the public. Books will be available for purchase that evening.
