Elizabeth Smart, who wrote about her traumatic abduction and nine months of captivity in her best-selling memoir My Story (St. Martin’s Press, 2013), will speak at Boston College on Apr. 10 at 7 p.m. in McGuinn Auditorium. Smart’s testimony helped to convict her captors and she has gone on to become an advocate and public speaker. As president of the Elizabeth Smart Foundation, she works to prevent crimes against children and to improve child abduction and recovery programs and legislation. Smart and other abduction survivors worked with the Department of Justice to create a survivors guide, “You’re Not Alone: The Journey From Abduction to Empowerment,” to encourage children who have gone through similar experiences to not give up and to know that there is life after tragic events.
