Yomi Adegoke: Love in the Age of Social Media

Sorry, this event has sold out

The most sensational debut of 2023! Vogue and Guardian columnist Yomi Adegoke’s debut novel The List (soon to be a major TV series) is a witty and provocative tale of modern relationships in the age of social media and MeToo activism.

Ola Olajide, journalist at Womxxxn magazine, and her fiancé are the perfect couple. But when The List appears – a crowdsourced set of online allegations – uncomfortable questions are raised.

Coco Khan, Guardian columnist and co-host (with Nish Kumar) of the political comedy podcast, Pod Save the UK will discuss love in the age of social media with Yomi.

Folkestone Book Festival is our annual celebration of books, ideas, reading and writing in its many magical forms. This year's festival has been curated by Jen Thatcher and James Harkin. Curating the festival for the first time, Jen and James have been inspired by Folkestone and how we can all come together through inspired discussion about global ideas, global thinking and possible futures.


This year's festival is for everyone and we want to make it possible for more people than ever before to be able to come together and enjoy a packed festival. To make this possible we have introduced a £5 ticket. This is a no questions asked ticket for those that may be struggling to afford events and performances.


We would like to thank our Principal Sponsor Saga, our Education Partner Canterbury Christ Church University, Le Shuttle and our Travel Partner, Southeastern. Creative Folkestone is also supported by Arts Council England, Folkestone and Hythe District Council, Kent County Council and The Roger De Haan Charitable Trust.
