Gilly Hopkins movie posterOn Friday, Oct. 7 at the Stowe Cinema 3Plex in Stowe, Vermont, we will debut this film based on beloved author and VCFA Trustee, Katherine Paterson’s 1979 National Book Award-winning novel.

The evening will also include a panel featuring Katherine Paterson and her sons, screenwriter and producer David L. Paterson, and producer John Paterson. M.T. Anderson—a VCFA Trustee and National Book Award winner—will moderate the panel, which will also include representatives from Vermont’s foster care system.

All proceeds from the event will go to benefit Tatum’s Totes, an organization partnering with Green Mountain United Way to support foster children in transition. The film opens nationally on this date and the Stowe event is the film’s only red carpet premiere in Vermont!

There will be a 4 p.m. screening for families and children at $10 per ticket.

Doors for the evening screening will open at 7 p.m. with the film premiere at 7:30 p.m. The guest panel will follow the evening screening.  This showing will be $30 per ticket with a complimentary glass of wine. Bear Pond Books of Stowe will be selling copies of the book and Katherine will be signing after both screenings.
