Dolly Alderton and Emma Gannon, in conversation


The Sunday Times Top 5 Bestselling writer Dolly Alderton and fellow podcaster and award-winning broadcaster, podcaster and author Emma Gannon on Everything They know About Love – and modern life.


‘For some, the sound that defined their adolescence was the joyful shrieks of their siblings playing in the garden. For others, it was the chain rattle of their much-loved bike, hobbling along hills and vale…For me, it was the sound of AOL dial-up Internet.’


When it comes to the trials and triumphs of becoming a grown up, Dolly Alderton has seen and tried it all. In her glorious memoir, Everything I Know About Love, already a top 5 Sunday Times bestseller, she vividly recounts wrestling with self-sabotage, getting drunk, getting dumped, realising that Ivan from the corner shop is the only man you’ve ever been able to rely on, and finding that that your mates are always there at the end of every messy night out. It’s a book – above all else – about recognising that you and you alone are enough.


‘A wonderful writer, who will surely inspire a generation, the way Cailtin Moran did before her’. Julie Burchill


Emma Gannon is an award-winning podcaster, broadcaster and author of Ctrl, Alt, Delete, How I Grew Up Online and the newly-published The Multi-Hyphen Method: Work less, create more and design a career that works for you (‘Written with humour and sense, it’s a great, empowering buy’ – Stylist). She is one of Forbes 30 Under 30 Europe 2018 list of influencers.


“I wish someone like Emma had existed when I was in my twenties. She’s so wise and clever and supportive – I think that if she had been around when I was young I wouldn’t have made such a hash of things. I’m just glad to have her now” – Bryony Gordon


This session will be followed by a book signing.
