Event Description:
I Have the Right To: A High School Survivor's Story of Sexual Assault, Justice, and Hope, by Chessy Prout and Jenn Abelson, a memoir recounting the true story of then-15-year-old Chessy Prout’s sexual assault at a prestigious New Hampshire boarding school, is the 2019 selection for the University of Arkansas One Book, One Community project. 

Chessy Prout was a student at a prestigious New England boarding school in 2014 when she was sexually assaulted by Owen Labrie, a popular senior at the school. She reported the attack and Labrie was arrested and charged. The ensuing trial revealed a rape culture at the school that included a student "ritual" involving senior boys trying to "score" with younger girls before graduation. In I Have the Right To, Prout tells her story again, in often wrenching detail - but she also looks forward in the book - advocating for a cultural change and a "Bill of Rights" for sexual assault survivors.

Prout and Abelson will visit campus to give a free public lecture.
