Dara Horn: 'Eternal Life'

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?”

Admission is $16 for Jewish Community Center members and $20 for the general public.
