Hold Fast to Dreams
- A College Guidance Counselor, His Students, and the Vision of a Life Beyond Poverty
- By: Joshua Steckel, Beth Zasloff
- Narrated by: Kaleo Griffith
- Length: 11 hrs and 6 mins
Since Joshua Steckel began work at a Brooklyn public high school as its first-ever college guidance counselor, every one of the hundreds of graduates he has counseled has been accepted to college, many to top-flight schools with all expenses paid. But getting in is only one small part of the drama of his students’ stories. In a riveting work of narrative nonfiction - winner of a Studs and Ida Terkel award - Hold Fast to Dreams follows the lives of 10 of Josh’s students as they navigate the vast and obstacle-ridden landscape of college in America.
