We’re talking about Books That Make You Reconsider the Meaning of Masculinity

Just what does it mean to be a man? Why is masculinity so specifically defined, whereas femininity is multi-layered and nuanced? Can and should men be bold in their transparency?

Justin Baldoni is the author of, “Man Enough: Undefining My Masculinity.”

Baldoni is an actor, filmmaker, entrepreneur, and changemaker who seeks to create impactful media. He is the creator of CW’s “My Last Days,” a documentary series chronicling courageous people living with a terminal illness, as well as the creator of “Man Enough,” the dinner conversation series which discusses traditional masculinity.

Baldoni established Wayfarer Studios to further create purpose-driven content. The studio’s first film project, “CLOUDS”, directed and produced by Baldoni, is now streaming on Disney+. He is currently set to direct “Hold Back the Stars” for Lionsgate. In addition, Baldoni also serves as founder and chairman of The Wayfarer Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to altering the way communities approach the needs of those experiencing homelessness.
