Special Breakfast Event with DIANA NYAD
Back in the 1970s, Diana Nyad was the greatest long-distance swimmer in the world. After setting a world record circling Manhattan, Nyad became a prominent sports broadcaster, filing compelling reports for National Public Radio, ABC’s Wide World of Sports, Fox Sports, and The New York Times. On September 2, 2013, at the age of sixty-four, after multiple failed attempts, Nyad emerged on the shores of Key West after completing a 110-mile, fifty-three-hour, record-breaking swim through shark-infested waters from Cuba to Florida and delivered three messages to the world: never, ever give up; you’re never too old to chase your dreams; and it looks like a solitary sport, but it takes a team. Millions of people around the world cheered for her and were moved by her incredible tenacity and determination, her triumph after so many bitter failures, and by the mantra—find a way—that enabled her to realize a dream in her sixties that had eluded her as a young Olympian in peak form.
TICKETS: $55 ticket Includes admission to the event, a copy of Diana Nyad's book Find a Way ($26.95) and a continental-style breakfast. After the author talk, attendees will have the opportunity to have their books signed.
