An Evening With Author Elizabeth Smart

Please join the Mount Carmel St. Ann’s Women’s Auxiliary Council when we host New York Times best-selling author and children's advocate Elizabeth Smart. Elizabeth’s book, My Story, is the traumatic yet triumphant true story of her childhood abduction and recovery. She will share her experience and talk about how there can be rewarding life after tragedy.

Elizabeth was abducted on June 5, 2002, and her captors controlled her by threatening to kill her and her family if she tried to escape. Fortunately, the police safely returned Elizabeth back to her family on March 12, 2003 after being held prisoner for nine grueling months.

Through this traumatic experience Elizabeth has become an advocate for change related to child abduction, recovery programs and National legislation. Elizabeth triumphantly testified before her captor and the world about the very private nightmare she suffered during her abduction, which led to conviction.

Elizabeth has chronicled her experiences in the New York Times best-selling book, My Story.

Elizabeth's abduction and recovery continues to motivate parents, law enforcement and leaders worldwide to focus on children's safety. She emphasizes vigilance by "every day" people and the belief that hope always exists to find every missing child.

Elizabeth's example is a daily demonstration that there really is life after a tragic event.
