Campus Read Lindsay King-Miller



Lindsay King-Miller has been selected as the Finlandia University Campus Read 2018 author. She will be at the Finnish American Heritage Center on Oct. 15, discussing her book Ask A Queer Chick: A Guide to Sex, Love, and Life for Girls Who Dig Girls.

“We’re very excited to welcome Lindsay King-Miller to campus this fall, and she’s also looking forward to the opportunity to meet personally with Finlandia students in classrooms and student organizations,” said Assistant Professor of Communication Dr. Monique Bourdage. “King-Miller writes both compassionately and entertainingly about a number of issues that do or will touch the lives of members of the Finlandia community. From being able to speak about her experiences in the so-called gig economy to discussions of gender, healthy relationships, popular culture, parenting, and health care, King-Miller is sure to spark many fruitful conversations on our campus and in our community.”

Copies of the King-Miller’s book are now available at North Wind Books for purchase.

King-Miller received her BA from the University of Arizona and her MFA from Naropa University. She started the advice column “Ask A Queer Chick” on The Hairpin in 2011and has been a contributor for several publications include and Buzzfeed.
