Elizabeth Smart was only 14 when she was abducted from her bedroom, capturing the headlines and the hearts of our nation. Nine months later, on March 12, 2002, she was found only 18 miles from her home living with the couple who abducted her. And so began her long journey of recovery.
Today, Smart is an activist and commentator for ABC News. She, along with her father, Ed, will be the guest speakers at The Center for Women and Families of Eastern Fairfield County's annual Speaking of Women luncheon at The Waterview in Monroe on Thursday, Sept. 20, at 11:30 a.m.
