BOWLING GREEN — Elizabeth Smart, whose months-long abduction as a teenager gripped the nation and made her a house-hold name, will speak Nov. 5 at Bowling Green State University.
Ms. Smart was held captive in 2002, and recently wrote the memoir My Story.
She is the first speaker in the BGSU libraries’ “Ordinary People, Extraordinary Stories” series. The event includes a dinner at 7 p.m. and Ms. Smart’s presentation at 8 p.m.
Tickets to the dinner and program at Bowen-Thompson Student Union are $50, or $250 to also attend a 6 p.m. reception and receive a signed book and VIP parking.
Proceeds from the series will go to the libraries’ digitization efforts.
