A Book Talk with Adam Nimoy – A hybrid event (in-person and virtual)


While the tabloids and fan publications portrayed the Nimoys as a “close family,” Leonard Nimoy was a total stranger to his son Adam.

The actor was as inscrutable as the iconic half-Vulcan science officer he portrayed on Star Trek, even to those close to him.
Now, his son’s poignant memoir explores their complicated relationship and how it informed his views on marriage, parenting, and later, sobriety. Despite their differences, both men ventured down parallel paths: marriages leading to divorce, battling addiction, and finding recovery. Most notably, both men struggled to take the ninth step in their AA journey: to make amends with each other.

Discover how the son of Spock learned to navigate this tumultuous relationship—from Shabbat dinners to basement AA meetings—and how he was finally able to reconcile with his father—and with himself.


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. Nimoy has directed over forty-five hours of network television and the critically acclaimed documentary film about his father, For the Love of Spock (2016), which was an Official Selection at the Tribeca Film Festival. He is the author of the memoir The Most Human: Reconciling with My Father, Leonard Nimoy (2024) and has been in 12-step recovery for twenty years. He lives in Los Angeles.
