Bryson City resident Jane Spotted Bird will read from her recently published memoir, Still Here: Dancing to the Beat of My Own Drum, at 2 p.m. on Saturday, May 21, at City Lights bookstore in Sylva.
The book tells the story of her journey after receiving a diagnosis of state IV cancer in 2008, when she was given six months to a year to live. She has now survived well beyond what her doctors expected and is healthy.
Spotted Bird will read selections from the book and take questions and comments from the audience. An signing will follow her remarks.
