BRIDGEWATER, Va. (AP) - The woman whose kidnapping as a 14-year-old caused a national sensation will speak at Virginia's Bridgewater College this month.
Elizabeth Smart is scheduled to tell her story on Feb. 25 at the college's Cole Hall.
She was abducted from her Salt Lake City bedroom at knifepoint in June 2002 and spent nine months in captivity. Brian David Mitchell is now serving two life sentences.
Now 25, Smart says the ordeal has taught her the importance of discussing child abuse and sexual abuse.
