As a member of the Palm Springs Preservation Foundation, I was just notified that Diane Keaton will be present at the upcoming Desert Spanish Weekend, and will serve as the Honorary Chairperson. The following is a copy/paste e-mail I received a few moments ago:
We are very excited to announce that actress Diane Keaton is our Desert Spanish Weekend Honorary Chairperson.
Aside from being an award-winning film actress, director, and author, Diane Keaton is highly respected for her efforts in the California architectural preservation community. In addition to her advocacy of residential preservation, Ms. Keaton is active in campaigns with the Los Angeles Conservancy to save and restore many historic public buildings.
Desert Spanish Weekend is being celebrated on March 23-25, 2012 and will recognized Palm Springs' amazing stock of Spanish-influenced architecture. The weekend's events include a free lecture, an all-day Saturday house tour and a cocktail party at the historic Thomas O'Donnell House.
