Ex-member of the Westboro Baptist Church
Banished: Surviving My Years in the Westboro Baptist Church

Tuesday, October 21, 2014
7 p.m. – Spellmann Center
Anheuser-Busch Leadership Room

Lauren spent her teenage years in the Westboro Baptist Church between 2001 and 2008. During this time she was actively involved in the controversial pickets for which the church is best known. In 2008, Lauren was excommunicated for questioning the belief system and the methods used by church members in expressing their ideology. Her memoir, Banished, was published by Grand Central Publishing in 2013.

Lauren now works as a registered nurse on the east coast. Lauren and her fiancé enjoy traveling, CrossFit, as well as outdoor activities including endurance races, hiking, dirt biking, snowboarding, and camping.
