Frank Phillips College students will Make the Impossible Possible

Students at Frank Phillips College have a lot to discuss this Fall as they read Make the Impossible Possible: One Man’s Crusade to Inspire Others to Dream Bigger and Achieve the Extraordinary as part of the university’s common reading program.

Previously selected as common reading at Indiana University of Pennsylvania, Voorhees College, and Winthrop University, the book has received many accolades including:

“It’s the American dream with a twist: for Strickland, it was never about shedding his past and getting ahead but about following his bliss and making a difference.” (Publishers Weekly)

“Straddling between both autobiographical and inspirational genre, the most exquisite beauty of this book is in its straightforward and heartfelt approach. There are so many imminently quotable lines you can draw from cover to cover. This is the kind of book you’d want to read over and over again, with a marker in hand to annotate it as you read, or with a pen and paper on the side to take down notes. Or even both. For as you share in the struggles and successes of Bill Strickland, Make The Impossible Possible is an inexhaustible wellspring of real-life inspiration.”—Sacramento Book Review
