Adam Nimoy will be discussing his memoir, The Most Human: Reconciling with My Father, Leonard Nimoy

June 5 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Free

Just in time for father’s day, Adam Nimoy will be discussing his memoir,

The Most Human: Reconciling with My Father, Leonard Nimoy,

with author Carol Hoenig.

 

Living with Dad was like living with a stranger–as a kid I often had trouble connecting and relating to him. But I was always proud of him.

My resentment towards my father kept building through the years. I wasn’t blameless, I know that now, but my bitterness blinded me to any thought of my own contribution to the problem.

I wanted things to be different for my children. I wanted to be the father I never had, so I coached Maddy’s soccer, drove Jonah to music lessons, helped them with their homework–all the things dads are supposed to do. All the things I wanted to do. So what if my Dad and I had been estranged for years? I was living one day at a time.

And then I got his letter.

That marked a turning point in our lives, a moment that cleared the way for a new relationship between us.

 

Adam Nimoy will sign purchased copies of The Most Human. Wouldn’t it make a nice Father’s Day gift? 

Adam Nimoy is a graduate of UC Berkeley and Loyola Law School. After seven years in entertainment law, he left to pursue a directing career.
