On Friday, July 7th at 7:00 PM, Edie Jarolim will be at SubText Books for a reading and discussion of her fantastic book, "Getting Naked for Money: An Accidental Travel Writer Reveals All." Book signing to follow. Plus, her dog Madeleine will be in attendance, looking cute and accepting treats!
Edie Jarolim describes the book:
It’s here — the story of how I quit my job in travel publishing, moved West, and found my mojo.
Getting Naked for Money is named for, and includes the story of, my assignment by a woman’s magazine to go to a nudist resort undercover – and uncovered (here’s a link to the published version as it originally appeared in More magazine). I pull back the curtain on both sides of the travel editor’s desk:
- As an in-house editor in New York (Simon & Schuster/Fodor’s and Random House/Fodor’s) and London (Rough Guides), I was privy to the inner workings of guidebook publishing. I rounded out my education as a media insider as the Travel and Food editor at Tucson’s largest daily newspaper, the Arizona Daily Star.
- As a freelancer, I authored three guidebooks, contributed to dozens of others, and wrote hundreds of articles, many for national publications. I know how unglamorous being a travel writer can be – and how rewarding.
