FIND A WAY by Diana Nyad

October 21, 2015

Diana Nyad spoke about her book, Find a Way, at Politics & Prose on Wednesday, October 21, 2015.

One of the all-time great long-distance swimmers, Nyad has accomplished feats requiring not just extraordinary athleticism and determination, but sheer courage. In 1975 she broke a 45-year-old record for swimming the 28 miles around Manhattan; in 1979 she covered the 102 miles between the Bahamas and Florida, without a shark cage. While pursuing a successful career as a sports commentator for NPR, ABC’s Wide World of Sports, and others, Nyad has continued swimming, and her fourth book is an inspiring account of her long struggle to swim the 110 miles from Cuba to Florida, a goal she reached on her fourth try, in 2013 at age sixty-four, setting a new record.
