One Book South Dakota book of 2020: Unfollow: A Memoir of Loving and Leaving the Westboro Baptist Church by Megan Phelps-Roper

Please register to participate in/ view the virtual book discussion over Zoom. You will receive an emailed link to the discussion on July 8th.

Copies of Unfollow are available for check out at the library courtesy of the South Dakota Humanities Council.

A wonderfully insightful memoir, Unfollow goes beyond the traditional ‘escape-from-a-cult’ narrative. In it, Megan Phelps-Roper shares her story of growing up in and eventually leaving the infamous Westboro Baptist Church, a group known for their messages of hate and unacceptance. Sensitive and generous, the narrative of Unfollow is genuinely enlightening as to why intelligent, educated, rational people can behave so abhorrently in the name of religion. Megan's story is one of gradual awakening through the questioning of her beliefs, leading to love, healing, and freedom.

This program was made possible by the South Dakota Humanities Council, an affiliate of the National Endowment for Humanities
