Elna subsequently left the faith a few years later, and shares that story, as well as how she came out to her parents about losing her virginity, here. The Glamour piece she refers to in that story is here. Baker also wrote a memoir, The New York Regional Mormon Singles Halloween Dance, and has been an occasional contributor to This American Life.
