Things To Do

An Evening with Diana Nyad


Nov 5, 2018
07:00 PM until 09:00 PM


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 give up. Two is you are never to old to chase your dreams. And three is it looks like a solitary sport but it takes a team." Nayd will discuss her memoir, Find a Way, which depicts her unique, passionate story about this heroic adventure.

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.
