Audie Murphy, the most decorated American combat soldier of World War II, will be brought to life by celebrated actor Duffy Hudson at a special community program at 6:30 p.m. Aug. 5 at the Hermiston Public Library, 235 E. Gladys Ave. in Hermiston.
Award-winning Hollywood actor, filmmaker and impressionist Duffy Hudson will tour eastern Oregon as part of a project launched by the Libraries of Eastern Oregon (LEO).
Hudson’s one-man show, featuring the portrayal of Murphy, as well as Albert Einstein and Dr. Suess, is the first presentation of its kind offered by the LEO.
At the Hermiston library, Hudson will present a live characterization of Audie Murphy. Guests will learn about Murphy’s life, including the outstanding bravery and valor he demonstrated in military combat and his time as an successful actor.
This event is free and open to the public. Hudson will visit several other communities to present his characterizations of Albert Einstein and Dr. Seuss. To view a list of these events, visit www.hermistonlibrary.us.
