LITTLE ROCK, AR - A best-selling author who says he has first-hand proof of heaven is in town today.

Dr. Eben Alexander, who wrote, “Proof of Heaven: A Neurosurgeon’s Journey into the Afterlife,” speaks at the Statehouse Convention Center at noon.

The event is part of a program at the Clinton School.

A book signing follows the appearance.

Dr. Alexander's book made the New York Times best sellers list. He writes about a journey that began after he slipped into a meningitis-induced coma for seven days.

Alexander’s near-death experience has changed him and the way he thinks about the brain forever. Alexander and his book investigate the true nature of consciousness through his miraculous experience.
