Oakland’s Simon Rich is a chip off a couple of well-known blocks

Wednesday, April 24, 2013

Among the writers to participate at Thursday night’s Regreturature 2013 event reading from works (their own) “that probably shouldn’t see the light of day”—Simon Rich, the 28-year-old comedy writer from Oakland who writes for The New Yorker and who was the youngest writer ever for Saturday Night Live. He maintains a purposely low profile for someone who’s had success early, and whose parents are former New York Times columnist Frank Rich and Gail Winston, an executive editor at HarperCollins. The Litquake/Writers’ Grotto-sponsored event is at the Swedish American Hall on Market Street. Oakland Tribune writes about Rich.
