WSNC Members please note:
The meeting previously scheduled for September 12th has been moved to September 19th due to a schedule conflict for our speaker Antoine Wagner.
Wagner is opening an art exhibition in the South of France on September 11th and will not be able to be in the US. He posponed his talk for one week to September 19th.
The Society is grateful to the JCC-SF for being flexible and allowing us to move the program. Please make note in your calendar!
