The (Zigzagging) Path to Publication
with Adam Nemett

Hailed as one of the top debut novels of 2018, We Can Save Us All’s path to publication stretched over 13 years. Author Adam Nemett will read and discuss themes from his novel and share some insights from the zigzagging but all too common "post-MFA" process, including his experiences in film/TV and as creative director for History Factory, a specialty marketing agency focused on heritage-based storytelling.

Adam Nemett is the author of We Can Save Us All, a debut novel published by The Unnamed Press (November 2018), and serves as creative lead and author for The History Factory, where he's written award-winning nonfiction books and directed campaigns for companies like Lockheed Martin, Brooks Brothers, 21st Century Fox, Adobe Systems, HarperCollins, and Pfizer. He is the writer/director of the feature film, The Instrument (2005), which LA Weekly described as, "damn near unclassifiable," and co-founder of MIMA Music Inc., an educational 501(c)3 nonprofit that has operated in 40 countries worldwide. Adam's work has been published, reviewed, and featured in Variety, LA Weekly, The New Yorker, Washington Post,, The Brooklyn Rail, C-Ville Weekly, and Cornel West's memoir Brother West: Living and Loving Out Loud.
