ONE YEAR LIVED front cover small

One Year Lived is Adam Shepard's accounting of the year he spent living abroad, immersing himself in other cultures. He says living with people from other cultures and backgrounds gave him a good understanding of where people are coming from, and he recommends it's something other young people do as part of their education. "It's fascinating the perspective we can gain when we step out of our bubbles of comfort, even just a little bit," he says.

Shepard visited seventeen countries on four continents from late 2011 to late 2012, and self publushed a book about his adventures in 2013.

RMA Publicity prepared a press release for the book, set up a national book tour, and also secured more than 25 media placements to promote the book and tour. The book officially launched on April 23, 2013.
