An Evening with Yomi Adegoke

Art &
Culture

What would you do if your partner was accused of assault? 

The List, the bestselling debut novel by Yomi Adegoke, follows a high-profile journalist who has made her name uncovering abuse scandals in the age of #MeToo. But when her fiancé is named in a list of anonymous allegations, online politics becomes personal. 

The List has confirmed Adegoke as one of today’s most compelling voices on feminism, race and popular culture. The novel, now in development for TV, interrogates the real implications of online allegations on our closest relationships.

On April 29, Adegoke comes to Intelligence Squared to discuss her reflections on life online in the twenty-first century.

Join us at the Tabernacle for a timely discussion on navigating the nuances of social injustice, victim-blaming, trust and forgiveness. 

Praise for the The List

‘Topical, heartfelt, provocative and wise.’ Bernardine Evaristo

‘It’s obvious Adegoke’s perspective is sorely needed in the culture.’ Guardian
