Noah Kilroy’s life was following a usual story line: Abandoned at birth by a drug-addicted mother, shuffled from foster home to foster home in Rhode Island, dropped out of high school, and served time for various drug felonies between the ages of 16 and 23. But the life of this man took a storybook twist: Released in 2003 from a Florida prison, Kilroy is now a lawyer and assistant city solicitor in Providence, R.I. And its twist happened because of a book he read during his Florida incarceration.
