Special to the PRESS
Will Everett is a noted writer, producer, world traveler and NPR correspondent with an impressive resumé. His NPR documentary, The World War I Living History Project, in which he traveled around the country interviewing the last surviving US veterans of WWI, featured narration by Walter Cronkite and gathered wide critical acclaim. He has worked with CNN’s Soledad O’Brien, hosted a popular NPR music program entitled Themes and Variations, and has contributed to Newsweek, the BBC, and other news outlets.
His most recent work was with International Relief and Development (IRD), helping create an agricultural program in Afghanistan. Everett recently returned after five years there, and just released a novel based on his experiences called We’ll Live Tomorrow, a work of fiction set in war-ravaged Afghanistan. Now currently residing in South Padre Island, he graciously consented to an interview.
