The Swain Library will host an afternoon author talk with local author

Written by 

Author Jane SpottedBird will discuss her new book, Still Here: Dancing to the Beat of My Own Drum on Saturday, at 1 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 6, at the Marianna  Black Library in Bryson City.

In May 2008, SpottedBird was diagnosed with stage IV cancer. Her doctor gave her 6-12 months to live with no hope of survival. In October 2009, her doctor said, “She’s a miracle.”

SpottedBird will talk about her incredible journey and about all the things she learned along the way, which inspired her to write this book. For more information call the library at 828.488.3030 or visit www.fontanalib.org/brysoncity on the world wide web.
