Diane Keaton has distinguished herself as an icon of culture, creativity and alternative thinking in a decades-long career spanning acting, directing, producing, writing, speaking and more.
As an actress, Diane has starred in some of the most memorable films of the 20th century. With an equal talent for comedy and drama, she captivated millions in her roles in the “Godfather“ trilogy, “Annie Hall,” “Manhattan,” “Reds,” “Baby Boom,” “The First Wives Club” and “Something’s Gotta Give,” among many more. She won the Academy Award for Best Actress in 1977, and has collected a bevy of nominations, recognitions, and awards throughout her illustrious career.
Diane has also established herself over her career as a reflective and insightful author. Her two-bestselling books, 2011’s “Then Again,” a memoir about her mother; and 2014’s autobiography “Let’s Just Say It Wasn’t Pretty,” won popular and critical acclaim.
Her most recent book, “The House that Pinterest Built” serves as a style guide and an inspirational tome. When Diane Keaton decided that she wanted to build her own home from the ground up, she took the advice of her dear friend, film director Nancy Meyers, and took to the boards of Pinterest to find inspiration. There she discovered the practical and the fantastical, elements and styles long adored and ones that she never knew she was drawn to. This book, chronicling Diane’s process of building her dreams through words and pictures, results in a compelling account of creativity and collaboration in the digital age.
An icon of individuality, creativity, and influence as a woman in Hollywood, Diane’s free spirit and insuppressible personality have inspired women from all walks of life to achieve without compromising who they are. Her insights at the 2017 Indiana Conference for Women will help foster a drive for personal and professional development for all conference attendees.
