Elizabeth Smart

Activist, speaker, and head of a foundation working to prevent crimes against children, Smart has come a long way from the night in 2002 when she was abducted. Her memoir, My Story (St. Martin's Press, $25.99), recounts what she endured, how she survived, and what she’s achieved in the ten years since. This event is part of The Newsmakers Series, co-sponsored with GW Lisner.
