In her fifth novel, Horn, a two-time winner of the National Jewish Book Award, draws on Jewish history and mysticism for a powerful and moving exploration of what it would mean to be immortal. The narrative unfolds over 2,000 years. Horn follows Rachel from Roman-occupied Jerusalem, where she and her first love, Elazar, make a fateful bargain to save their son by sacrificing their own deaths, to 2018, when everyone but Rachel looks to technology to make death obsolete. Dara Horn shares her latest book and its central question: what is living for? Book signing to follow.

“An elegant musing on sacredness, history, and purpose that is, at the same time, a deliciously romantic, highly suspenseful page-turner.” - Geraldine Brooks, author of The Secret Chord
“Eternal Life” takes the psychological novel to places I’ve never seen before…Riveting, startling, hilarious, and sad?I’ve never read anything like it.” -Elif Batuman, author of The Idiot

Price: $20; JCC Member Price: $16
