Rod Evans holds degrees from Northern State and South Dakota State Universities and presently lives in Aberdeen with his wife, Vicki. He’s a Speaker’s Bureau Scholar and One Book South Dakota discussion leader for the South Dakota Humanities Council, as well as an award winning playwright. Rod and Vicki have been involved with community theatre both on stage and as directors, and together they’ve written several stage and screenplays. They hope to form an independent film company in the near future to shoot documentaries and films with local settings, and to spend as much time as possible in the Twin Cities with son Barrett, his wife, Teresa, and new granddaughter, Cecily.
