P&P Live!: Diane Nine – My Life With Helen: The Dean of the White House Press Corps Through Her Agent's Eyes — with Cindy Williams

Upcoming Event
Sunday, September 13, 2020 - 5:00pm

This event will be streamed online as part of our P&P Live! Series. 

There's no denying that Helen Thomas was a larger-than-life personality, but more importantly, she was a trailblazer for women in journalism. Professionally, she reported on more presidential administrations than anyone in history, and she rightfully earned her place--front row, center--as the Dean of the White House Press Corps. However, later in her life, Helen made some regrettable comments that subsequently ended her illustrious career and tarnished her reputation.

In My Life With Helen, readers learn for the first time what was going on behind the scenes after Helen's fall from grace and how Diane struggled to come to terms with the media frenzy that followed.

Diane S. Nine is a Washington, D.C.-based literary agent and attorney, the author of Get Published: A Guide to Literary Tips, Traps & Truth, and the president of Nine Speakers, Inc.

Actress, writer and producer Cindy Williams has starred in some of the most historical movies and television programs in entertainment history. Her career began in the 1970s in prestigious movies like Travels with My Aunt , American Graffiti, and The Conversation. Once she and Penny Marshall played “loose girls” on the hit TV show Happy Days, the network quickly ordered a spin-off of the dynamic comedy duo. After changing their characters to blue-collar workers in the mid-West, they made their debut in Laverne & Shirleyin 1976. The show quickly became the most-watched American television program. The show remains in syndication around the world and has a very loyal following of original and new fans. Cindy continues to work in her first love, the theater, as she performs in musicals all over the country. She is the author of Shirley, I Jest.
