Diana Nyad ’73 to speak on new book

Diana Nyad ’73 will speak at the Union League of Chicago on Wednesday, September 7, about her new book, Find a Way.

When Nyad arrived on the shore of Key West, Florida, on September 2, 2013, after nearly 53 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 28 and at long last achieved when she was 64.  


Nyad will speak about her riveting memoir, Find a Way, in which she shares a spirited account of what it takes to face one’s fears, engage one’s passions, and never ever give up. 

The Union League Authors Group event begins with an 11:30 a.m. reception followed by lunch and the program at noon. The price is $60 per person, which includes lunch and a copy of the book, Find a Way. The Union League is located at 65 West Jackson Boulevard in Chicago.
