Diana Nyad

Talks/Lectures

Village Books and Fairhaven Runners & Walkers are thrilled to announce that Diana Nyad will be passing through Bellingham with her EverWalk Team on their walk from White Rock, B.C. to Seattle! Join us as she discusses her work with the biggest walking initiative in America, and her memoir, Find A Way: The Inspiring Story of One Woman's Pursuit of a Lifelong Dream. When Diana Nyad arrived on the shore of Key West after fifty-three hours of grueling swimming across an epic ocean, she not only set a world record--becoming the first person to swim the shark-infested waters between Cuba and Florida with no cage for protection--she also succeeded in fulfilling a dream she first chased at age twenty-eight and at long last achieved when she was sixty-four. Now, in a riveting memoir, Diana shares a spirited account of what it takes to face one's fears, engage one's passions, and never ever give up. For no matter what life may throw at you, or how many times you may have experienced defeat, it is always possible--as long as you commit to living life to the nth degree, no regrets--to "find a way." For her maverick open-water performance of the 1970s, Diana Nyad was known as the world's greatest long-distance swimmer. For the next thirty years, Nyad was a prominent sports broadcaster and journalist, filing compelling stories for National Public Radio, ABC's Wide World of Sports, and others. She is a national fitness icon, has written three other books, is a talented linguist, and is one of today's most powerful and engaging public speakers. Village Books and Fairhaven Runners & Walkers are thrilled to announce that Diana Nyad will be passing through Bellingham with her EverWalk Team on their walk from White Rock, B.C. to Seattle.
