Eboo Patel

Edgewood College is pleased to welcome Eboo Patel to the 2018 Siena/Common Reading Lecture. This special evening will take place Wednesday, March 7, 7 p.m., in Anderson Auditorium. There is no admission charge, but seating is limited.

Mr. Patel will present ‘Crossroads of Inheritance and Discovery – Inspiring Interfaith Action.’

Mr. Patel is the author of Acts of Faith, the 2017-’18 Common Reading selection for Edgewood College. He is the founder of Interfaith Youth Core, an organization built on the idea that religion should be a bridge of cooperation rather than a barrier of division. He is inspired to build this bridge by his identity as an American Muslim navigating a religiously diverse social landscape. Mr. Patel holds a doctorate in the Sociology of Religion from Oxford University, where he studied on a Rhodes scholarship.

The 2018 Siena/Common Reading Lecture is sponsored in part by the Heideman Crossing Educational Boundaries Fund.
