An Evening with Diana Nyad
At the age of 64, in her fifth and final attempt, Diana Nyad successfully fulfilled her lifelong dream of completing the 110-mile swim from Cuba to Florida. Upon completing her grueling 53-hour journey, a breathless Nyad told the world, “I have three messages. One is we should never ever give up. Two is you are never too old to chase your dreams. And three is it looks like a solitary sport, but it takes a team.”
Nyad became a prominent sports broadcaster, filing compelling reports for NPR, ABC’s Wide World of Sports, Fox Sports, and The New York Times.
In her memoir, Find a Way, Diana weaves a unique, passionate story of this heroic adventure and the extraordinary life experiences that have served to carve her unwavering spirit.
This special event is part of the Noreen L. Papa - Mothers: Live Your Life series and is co-sponsored by the Library, Books on the Common and Run Like a Mother 5K. Copies of Find a Way will be available for sale and signing at the event.
Tickets are $5, which can be used as a credit off the purchase price of one copy (per person) of Find a Way.
