Fire, brimstone and Kindle: Westboro expat to pen memoir

by Jeremy Hooper

Personally, I thought fleeing members Libby Phelps or Josh Phelps-Roper would make it to market first. Though it seems it's non-blood relative Lauren Drain, whose family joined Westboro's "f*g-hating" world sometime in the late '90s, who will inaugurate the Phelps tell-all genre:

Could open a whole literary door for young Lauren. We're seeing exercise books with tips on how one can maximize sign-carrying so that it most effectively targets one's biceps. Or maybe a travelogue, People I've Groaned, Places I've Demeaned. And judging by how able she was to swallow Fred Phelps' teachings for so long without vomiting, Lauren surely has the sort of strong stomach that's tailor-made for an adventurous cookbook. The possibilities are as endless as Fred Phelps' condemnations!
