HARDWICK — Rick Winston, author of “Save Me a Seat: a Life With Movies,” will read from and discuss his new book about the beloved Savoy Theater in Montpelier on Monday, Oct.16, at 6:30 p.m..

Winston’s lifelong love of movies led to the creation of one of Vermont’s premier cultural institutions, The Savoy Theater. With humor and heart, he takes us behind the scenes of the hard and rewarding work of building a film venue over decades. “Save Me a Seat!” is the story of how a vibrant film culture took root in unlikely surroundings and the story of how a boy from the New York City suburbs landed in Vermont and became a preeminent film programmer and historian in the Green Mountain State. Noted film critic Molly Haskell wrote, “This book is an irresistible feast that brings back the adventures of moviegoing.”
