Famed long distance swimmer Diana Nyad captured the heart of Key West in 2013 when she emerged on Smathers Beach, having completed her historic swim from Cuba to the US, Havana to Key West. As an athlete, author, former sports broadcaster, and fitness icon, Nyad’s life reads like a riveting collection of stories. The Courage to Fail gives audience members the opportunity to absorb the tales of an incredible public figure in an intimate setting.

On September 2, 2013, at the age of sixty-four, Diana Nyad became the first person to swim from Cuba to Florida without the aid of a shark cage, swimming 111 miles in fifty-three hours from Havana to Key West. In the 1970s, she became known as the world’s greatest long distance swimmer with her open-water achievments, including a record-breaking swim around Manhattan. 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 the author of the popular memoir, Find a Way, and three other books, is a national fitness icon, is a talented linguist, and is one of today’s most powerful and engaging public speakers.
