2022 Malibu Library Speaker Series Continues In-Person with Shark Attack Survivor Paul de Gelder

October 11, 2022 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

(Malibu, CA) – The 2022 Malibu Library Speaker Series continues with Paul de Gelder, an elite Australian Navy diver who lost two limbs in a horrific shark attack that changed his life and set him on an inspirational path, on Tuesday, October 11, 7:00 PM at the Malibu Library.
De Gelder now inspires others to overcome obstacles and champions shark conservation. He will discuss his journey of discovery and triumph that can relate to anyone. His inspiring story will spark conversations about inspiration, teamwork, happiness, overcoming obstacles, and turning weakness into strength.
He has been a long-time co-host on the Discovery Channel’s Shark Week. He has also been tapped to help promote The Meg, an action-horror film about a 95-foot prehistoric shark starring Jason Stratham. Triumphing over tragedy by relying on the mantra that he learned as a young paratrooper in the Australian Army, “Improvise…Adapt…Overcome,” Paul has enthralled and motivated audiences around the world. The free event includes a reception with a Q&A. Space is limited, so RSVPs are required. The Malibu Library is located at 23519 West, Civic Center Way. For more information or to RSVP, visit or call the Malibu Library at 310-456-6438.
