TFC is excited to welcome Class of '03 authors and Terrace members Eva Hagberg Fisher (author of How To Be Loved: A Memoir of Lifesaving Friendship) and Adam Nemett (author of We Can Save Us All: A Novel), in conversation and reading from their forthcoming books. Eva and Adam will discuss the process of writing their respective books, their paths to publication, and how their time at Princeton influenced their careers.
Eva Hagberg Fisher is most recently the author of HOW TO BE LOVED: A MEMOIR OF LIFESAVING FRIENDSHIP (Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, Feb 2019), the story of how an isolated person’s life was ripped apart only to be gently stitched back together through friendship, and the recovery—of many stripes—that came along the way. With gorgeous prose shot through with joy, pain, fear, and the secret truths inside all of us, Eva writes about the friends who taught her to grow up and open her heart—and how the relentlessness of suffering can give rise to the greatest joy.
Adam Nemett is most recently the author of WE CAN SAVE US ALL (The Unnamed Press, Nov 2018), a debut novel set at Princeton in the escalating days of climate change, where a group of undergrads forms a disaster relief movement--inspired by superheroes and fueled by psychedelics--that expands across college campuses nationwide, inspiring a cult-like following. "We Can Save Us All is a wild and uproarious debut that is also wise and deeply felt. Come for the costumes, comedy, and psychedelics; stay for the searching questions about what it means to live an honorable life―to try to be one of the Good Guys―at the (maybe) end of time."
