Man Made: A Stupid Quest for Masculinity explores the absurdities of modern masculinity from Time columnist Joel Stein. The funny and poignant book was provoked by Stein’s original faulty notion that he needed to acquire more manly skills and habits to pass on to his newborn son. Tuesday, May 22, at 7 p.m. Sixth & I Historic Synagogue. 600 I St. NW. Tickets are $10, or $27 for two tickets and a copy of the book. Call 202-408-3100 or visit sixthandi.org.
Read Stein’s recent Time column I Had a Gay Old Time. Why I’ll never spend the night in a straight hotel again.
