Actor Hal Holbrook To Be Honored At Mark Twain Museum

The Quincy Journal in Illinois reports that actor Hal Holbrook, who has portrayed author and humorist Mark Twain on stage for many years, will be honored at the Mark Twain museum.

Emmy and Tony winning actor Hal Holbrook will receive the Mark Twain Lifetime Achievement Award at 4 p.m. Nov. 18 at the Mark Twain Museum.

Holbrook is the first recipient of this award, which honors individuals who have furthered Twain's legacy in a significant way.

"What started out as a desperate move to make a living has become the engine of my life," Holbrook said in response to the award. "Mark Twain has taken me to every corner of America and shown us who we are, where we have failed, and what we could become. How could I ever ask for more than that?"
