The David Sobel lecture co-sponsored by Antioch University Santa Barbara originally planned for Tuesday, February 17 has been rescheduled to Monday, April 20 at 7:00 p.m.
Sobel has been unable to get a flight out of Boston due to the extreme winter conditions affecting air travel throughout the New England region.
The free lecture and Q&A session by educator and author Sobel is now scheduled for the evening of Monday, April 20 in the Fleischmann Auditorium at the Santa Barbara Museum of Natural History, located at 2559 Puesta del Sol.
