Emma Dabiri - You're Booked

This week we are delighted to welcome the broadcaster, academic and bestselling author Emma Dabiri to You're Booked. Emma is the author of Don't Touch My HairWhat White People Can Do Next: From Allyship to Coalition and her latest book Disobedient Bodies: Reclaim Your Unruly Beauty, that accompanies The Cult of Beauty, a major exhibition at Wellcome Collection. We talked to Emma about fashion inspiration in Anne of Green Gables, the philosophy of beauty, the genius of Toni Morrison and E Nesbit being the gateway to a lifelong love of books.
