A reading by Mike Rich

Thursday, April 4, 2013 7:30 PM - 9:00 PM

Mike Rich's screenwriting breakthrough came in 1998 when his script Finding Forrester was honored by the prestigious Nicholl Fellowship competition.  Within weeks it was picked up by Columbia Pictures and was a holiday season release in 2000, starring Sean Connery and directed by Gus Van Sant.  Mike's second screenplay The Rookie starred Dennis Quaid and Rachel Griffiths and was both a commercial and critical success for Disney in 2002.  The following year, Mike wrote the script for Radio, which starred Ed Harris, Cuba Gooding Jr. and Debra Winger.  

He has been a contributing writer on Miracle, Eight Below, and Invincible.  Mike's works also include The Nativity Story, a feature film on the Christmas story starring Keisha Castle Hughes and Oscar Isaac, and Secretariat, a Disney film which was released in the fall of 2010.  Mike and his wife Grace continue to make their home in the Portland area.
