The LSSU Dance Company invites you to its spring showcase, "Give Me Back My Glory," which will be held at 7 p.m., April 12-13 in the Arts Center.

This year's program benefits those in the LSSU community who have recently been diagnosed with cancer - longtime humanities professor Tom Schirer, dance professor and program director Deborah Choszczyk, and fire science student Zach Barber. Admission is by donation.

A raffle of donated items will be three tickets for $1, and a silent auction of works by university and local artists is planned.

In addition, author Connie Curry of Delaware, Ohio, who is also a cancer survivor, will be attending the show and signing copies of her book, "Give Me Back My Glory."

The recipient of the James Thurber Humor Writing Contest Award, Curry wrote the book to chronicle her own struggles with breast cancer in a humorous and serious way. A columnist, working mother, and freelance writer, Curry hopes, through relating her raw and realistic experience, that women will take charge of their lives and their illness with a positive attitude, thus speeding the healing of mind and body.

You can find out more about the book at her website. or 740-815-2573.
