Glendale native Tom Haig traveled the world as a professional diver early in his career before having an accident that left him a wheelchair user.
But that hasn’t stopped him from pursuing what he calls his story of redemption.
“You can go as low as you can imagine, and you can turn it around,” Haig said.
he wrote about his journey in a recently published book Global Nomad: My Journey of Submersion, Tragedy and Rebirth.
He is back in Wisconsin discussing his book at an event held at the North Shore Library, N. 6800 Port Washington Road, Glendale, Sunday, January 8, from 2-4pm. Haig, the former president of the Pro Basketball Writers Association, is interviewed by Mary Schmitt Boyer. The event is free.
No registration is required, but those interested in attending are encouraged to RSVP via Facebook prior to the event. Copies of this book are available from the Boswell Book Company, 2559 N. Downer Ave.
Haig was also inducted into the Nicollette High School Athletic Hall of Fame on January 6. He was the most accomplished diver in the school’s history and, 42 years after his graduation, he still holds the record for the swim team’s top five all-time. in school.
