2011-2012 Common Read: Acts of Faith
Eboo Patel's memoir (Beacon Press) was the 2011-12 Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA) Common Read selected by a committee of UUA staff. A 2008 speaker at the UUA General Assembly, Patel is founder and executive director of the Interfaith Youth Core (IFYC), an international, nonprofit, youth service leadership organization. Ten years after 9/11, Acts of Faith describes the vulnerability of youth to violent, fundamentalist influences and makes a case for all of us, particularly youth, to promote pluralism by engaging in interfaith dialogue and social justice work.
