Linda Berg invites you to this Servas community event in Washington DC:

Servas.org, an international traveling and hosting group, has a mission of promoting peace and social justice through world wide interpersonal communication. It is holding a pot luck brunch on Sunday, January 8 (snow day, the 15th) at 11:30 AM. Author, Rita Golden Gelman, author of "Tales of a Female Nomad," "Female Nomad and Friends,"(filled with fabulous international recipes) and 70 children's books including the wonderfully funny "More Spaghetti, I Say," will speak.

Amazon reviews: "Gelman's book, "Tales of a Female Nomad," is a testament to the human spirit, courage, and to our basic need to connect with others. She reveals intimate details, especially about fears and insecurities, which made me I more and more drawn to her story. It is though she is inviting the reader to be a friend and to share her experiences. She travels unconventionally - without much of a plan and not just to capital cities. Her stories of the people she has met warms the heart and reveals a beautiful humanity that is shared among all cultures, This book is wonderful for anyone, but I strongly recommend it to people all ages and walks of life. Shows how one can live their dream and take the road not taken.

I absolutely loved this book and wholeheartedly recommend it to anyone who has an appreciation for traveling and the lessons one can learn about themselves from such experiences. Rita's travels and lifestyle change left me in complete awe and filled me with absolute admiration for the guts, courage, and trust that were required of her. This book will not only inspire the reader to embark on travels of his/her own, but will cause some much needed introspection into the routines that so many of us lead in our daily lives. This book serves as a shot in the arm to get out and experience life, others, and other places."
