Diana Butler Bass speaking with hands raised at podium in Chautauqua


Most of Diana's speaking engagements are based on her most recent books where she makes written material come alive in the form of lectures, inspirational talks, sermons, interviews, and Q&A sessions. For these events, she tailors material for single lectures, single day presentations, or multi day events depending on the needs of your church, college, or organization.

For more information about engaging Diana to speak to your group, please contact Diana’s booking agent Jim Chaffee
