In 1987, Rita Golden Gelman divorced, sold her possessions and left behind what many would have considered to be a glamorous life in Los Angeles. She hasn’t had a permanent address since.
Rita is the author of Tales of a Female Nomad in which she chronicles her first 15 or so years of travel.
She’s also the author of Female Nomad and Friends, the profits of which go directly to help children living in a slum in Delhi. Rita is also the author of more than 70 children’s books, some of which are still in print and sold through Scholastic.
At 80, Rita is still traveling, still connecting (which is her big message) and she’s still inspiring others to do the same.
