Fresh off the release of her latest work Eternal Life, author Dara Horn, a two-time winner of the National Jewish Book Award, visits Carlsbad for a stimulating discussion of immortality and the meaning of life at Dove Library, followed by a book signing. Interweaving Jewish history and mysticism, Horn's fifth novel follows Rachel, a woman who cannot die. Back in Roman-occupied Jerusalem, Rachel and her first love, Elazar, make a fateful bargain that would alter the course of their mortal lives forever: they would save their son by sacrificing their own deaths. Flash forward to 2018 (2,000 years later) and Rachel, who is no stranger to the problems of immortality, finds herself living in a technological world obsessed with making death obsolete. Profound and moving, Eternal Life is "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).
