The Yellow Birds by Kevin Powers which has been named The One Book, One Philadelphia selection for the 2014 season!
The Yellow Birds has been compared to Tim O’Brien’s classic war novel, The Things They Carried, for its powerful depiction of the truth and tragedy of war. Poet/novelist Powers vividly tells the story of a young soldier struggling to find meaning in his harrowing experiences in Iraq, while suffering profound guilt over his friend and fellow soldier’s death, as well as alienation from community and family upon his return home. According to The New York Times, “Kevin Powers has something to say, something deeply moving about the frailty of man and the brutality of war, and we should all lean closer and listen.”

We have another happy update to share with you: Rolo from the Candy Class (now named Rocky) is getting tons of love from his adoptive family! Here’s what they have to say:
Happy New Year to the New Leash on Life family! As my family celebrated Rocky’s (formerly Rolo) adoption anniversary yesterday, I felt inclined to reach out to you and your organization and thank you for saving our sweet boy.
When we initially brought Rocky into our home, my husband and I were wide-eyed and terrified that we had made a mistake adding another dog to our household. A year later, we cannot imagine a day without his smiling face and wagging tail. Whether he’s imitating he behaviors of our jack Russell terrier, by my husband’s side, or “baby sitting” my nephew, Rocky is such a joy to have in our home.
Thank you and your organization for all of your hard work with these animals and inmates. We wish you the best in 2014!
Jill & Kevin
Did you die a little from the cuteness? That’s OK, because we did too!
We’re so glad that Rocky found such a wonderful adoptive family. This happy, adorable dog would have been euthanized if it weren’t for the New Leash on Life USA program. Thank you, Jill and Kevin, for giving Rocky the loving forever home that he deserves!
