LOWELL, Mass. (AP) - Oscar-winning actress Meryl Streep's appearance at the University of Massachusetts-Lowell has been postponed because of an impending snowstorm.
Streep's appearance originally scheduled for Wednesday has been postponed until April 1.
Streep will be interviewed by bestselling author and UMass-Lowell English professor Andre Dubus III and will also take questions from the audience.
All net proceeds from the event will go toward scholarship funds, one for an English major and one for a math major. The goal is to raise more than $100,000.
Streep has been nominated for 18 Oscars, and won three, most recently in 2012 for her portrayal of Margaret Thatcher in "The Iron Lady."
All tickets will be valid for the new date. Those requesting refunds should do so by February 18.
