Dara Horn, Author of Eternal Life |  Dinner Reception | $36 per person 

Struggling to save her family, Rachel makes the ultimate sacrifice—but instead of sacrificing her life, she sacrifices her death in Dara Horn’s new novel ETERNAL LIFE.

“The chilling pathos of Dara Horn’s Eternal Life is bound to turn every mortal reader into a philosopher of cosmic joy.”— Cynthia Ozick, author of Foreign Bodies

Dara Horn received her PhD in comparative literature from Harvard University, and was chosen by Granta magazine as one of the best young American novelists for 2007. Her first novel, In the Image, received a National Jewish Book Award. Her second novel, The World to Come, received another National Jewish Book Award along with the Harold U. Ribalow Prize and other honors. Her third novel, All Other Nights, was selected as an Editors’ Choice in the New York Times Book Review, and her fourth novel, A Guide for the Perplexed, was longlisted for the Carnegie Medal for Excellence in Fiction. She has taught courses in Hebrew and Yiddish literature at Harvard University, Sarah Lawrence College, and City University of New York. She lives in New Jersey with her husband and four children.
