About the Conversational Partners:

Justin Baldoni is an actor, director, producer, entrepreneur and changemaker whose efforts are focused on creating impactful media and entertainment. Baldoni is the co-founder of Wayfarer Studios, an independent financial and production engine pioneering purpose-driven, multi-platform film and television productions that elevate and speak to the human spirit. He is also the founder of Wayfarer Entertainment, a social impact production company, and founder of Wayfarer Foundation, a non-profit which seeks to change the way communities see and respond to unhoused populations. Baldoni made his feature-film directorial debut in March 2019 with Five Feet Apart for CBS Films and Lionsgate. Baldoni first rose to worldwide fame through his role as “Rafael” on The CW’s award-winning phenomenon Jane the Virgin. He currently lives in Los Angeles with his wife, two children and their puppy.

Actress, activist, and podcast host of “Sorry, Not Sorry,” Alyssa Milano has been in the spotlight for most of her life.  She chooses to shine that spotlight on causes that matter deeply to her.  Her advancement of #MeToo sparked a viral movement of women fighting against sexual harassment and assault and she has been involved in TimesUp since its inception.  In the wake of the mass shooting at Stoneman Douglas High School, Alyssa became one of the founders of NoRA, a coalition dedicated to combatting the NRA money in political campaigns so that common sense gun reform can be enacted. For 15 years, she has been a UNICEF National Ambassador.  In 2016, she received their Spirit of Compassion Award for her dedication to their mission of advocating for the protection of children's rights, helping meet their basic needs and expanding their opportunities to reach their full potential.  She has lobbied members of congress for greater rights for immigrants as well as education reform and has been on the forefront of efforts to protect health coverage for all Americans.  She continues to use her voice and platform to advocate for social justice, fairness and equality.

Blue Willow Bookshop expects all participants to maintain an atmosphere of respect and fairness. Any comments or questions that violate this standard of behavior including any form of harassment, may, at the discretion of the organizers, be immediately removed.
