Author Rita Golden Gelman Reads

Author Rita Golden Gelman reads from her new book "Female Nomad and Friends: Tales of Breaking Free and Breaking Bread Around the World."

In 1987, Rita, newly divorced, set out to live her dream. She sold all her possessions and became a nomad. She wrote a book about her ongoing journey and, in 2001, insisted on putting her personal email address in the last chapter of "Tales of a Female Nomad: Living at Large in the World." It turned out to be a fortuitous decision. She has met thousands of readers, stayed in their homes, and sat around kitchen tables sharing stories and food and laughter.

The author will read selections of her book, answer audience questions, and sign books available for sale. Free.
