ebooCHICAGO,IL–Eboo Patel discussed various interpretations for the meaning of the word “home” during a recent book reading and discussion at College of DuPage. A former College of DuPage student, Patel read from his book “Acts of Faith: The Story of an American Muslim,” which is both an exploration of faith and a personal story about his own struggle against racial intolerance. Patel served on President Barack Obama’s Advisory Council on Faith-Based Partnerships and founded the Interfaith Youth Core, which promotes mutual respect and religious pluralism. His appearance was part of the Writers Read series at College of DuPage.
