Meryl Streep To Speak At UMass-Lowell

LOWELL, Mass. — Oscar-winning actress Meryl Streep is coming to the University of Massachusetts-Lowell to speak to students and raise money for scholarships.

Streep is scheduled to appear at Tsongas Center on Wednesday where she will be interviewed by best-selling author and UMass English professor Andre Dubus III about her acting career.

Streep will also take questions from the audience.

All net proceeds from the event, including a raffle of a director’s chair signed by Streep, 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 the late British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher in “The Iron Lady.”
