Elizabeth Smart Shares Her Story [VIDEO]

Written by Eric Wilstein

Kidnapping survivor Elizabeth Smart shared her story with students at Bowling Green State University on Tuesday, and promoted her recently-published memoir.

Smart was the inaugural speaker for the BGSU University Libraries’ “Ordinary People, Extraordinary Stories” series. The newly-wed spoke about life since her 9-month abduction in 2002, and her new memoir, “My Story.”

Smart answered questions for the media prior to the event. In reference to what she wants readers to take away from her story, Smart said, “I want people to walk away feeling they have a renewed sense of hope; feeling that whatever trials we face in life, that you can move forward, you can recover.”

Those who attended the event at the Bowen—Thompson Student Union enjoyed dinner at a reception prior to Smart’s presentation.

Smart now dedicates her efforts to the Elizabeth Smart Foundation, working to prevent crimes against children.
