‘Hi, I’m Ernie Pyle’ to be performed at library on Thursday

Gary Morrison will perform his one-man show, "Hi, I'm Ernie Pyle,' at Loutit District Library on Thursday. It will take place in program rooms A and B, beginning at 7 p.m. Morrison takes Pyle's most hard-hitting, poignant, relevant and comical dispatches and presents them in a way Pyle would have - if he were alive today. He is not just reading Pyle's dispatches, but relating them as if he is speaking to each audience member individually.

At the time of death on April 18, 1945, Pyle was the most widely read of all correspondents covering World War II. That is because he wrote about the war from the soldier’s perspective — outside, on the ground, and in the trenches alongside with them.

Pyle’s columns appeared in nearly 400 daily and weekly newspapers; and in the Stars and Stripes, the serviceman’s newspaper. Whenever Pyle came across a group of soldiers, he always introduced himself by saying: “Hi, I’m Ernie Pyle.”

The program is free. For more information, visit www.loutitlibrary.org; or call 842-5560, ext. 214.
