Oct 20, 2016 5:16 PM -
A standing-room-only crowd recently attended a Writers Read event celebrating the College's 50-year anniversary with featured authors, activists and former COD students Eboo Patel and Leigh Stein reading and discussing their work. Patel is the author of "Acts of Faith," "Sacred Ground" and his recent release "Interfaith Leadership." A Rhodes Scholar and the founder and president of Interfaith Youth Core (IFYC), Patel has worked with governments, social organizations and colleges across the U.S. to help realize a future where religion is a bridge of cooperation rather than a barrier of division.
