Elizabeth Smart memoir due

SALT LAKE CITY — Ten years after her kidnapping, Elizabeth Smart is preparing her story of being held captive by a homeless street preacher, her improbable rescue after nine months, and how she advocated for children after the ordeal.

St. Martin's Press bought the rights to the memoir from the now 25-year-old senior at Brigham Young University. Smart married a fellow Mormon missionary, Matthew Gilmour, in February.

The account is being written by Chris Stewart, a congressman-elect from Utah who has authored books with religious and patriotic themes.

Smart was 14 when she was snatched from her bedroom at knifepoint on June 5, 2002.
