The bestselling columnist and podcaster is fast becoming the voice of the millennial generation. She joins us to explore the obstacle course of adulthood and question society’s milestones.
Emma Gannon believes in the power of having many strings to your bow. A former columnist for The Telegraph and The Sunday Times, the author of two non-fiction books and host of the award-winning Ctrl, Alt, Delete podcast, her insights into how our passions drive our careers have earned her acclaim as a curator of people and of ideas. For Emma, following interests where they lead doesn’t make millennials flakey or indecisive; it makes us hungry for opportunities to grow.
In this free livestream with Hannah MacInnes, Emma will explore the themes of her debut novel, Olive: how to navigate the world without a compass, weighing up options as we reach life’s crossroads – from jobs to marriage to the major-impact decision of whether to become a parent.
Praise for Emma Gannon:

This event takes place at 6:30pm British Summer Time.
