The Free Library’s Living Library event is coming up this Wednesday, June 20 at 7:00 p.m. in Room 108 of the Parkway Central Library. At this event, human “books” will be available to be “borrowed” for 15-minute conversations.

This year marks Ed Tettemer's 38th year in the advertising and communications business. Ed was a founding partner of the ad firm Red Tettemer and is the Creative Director of TrackPackPA.com, but that only tells part of the story:  He's a writer by trade, a strategic planner by design, and he also has a passion for volunteerism, cooking for the Strathmere Volunteer Fire Company. In his spare time, he’s been known to pick a guitar and even churn out a documentary film.

For a few years in the early 2000s, Kristin Cowperthwaite was sometimes seen in a corset playing a cello for the goth-rock trio Rasputina. Nowadays she’s more likely to be in scrubs. As an Emergency Medicine Physician at Cooper University Hospital in Camden, Kristin sees patients from every possible background and all walks of life. When she’s not saving lives, she’s likely to be found at her community garden or taking areal acrobatics classes at the Philadelphia School of Circus Arts.

Interested in learning more about Ed and/or Kristin? Stop by the Living Library on June 20! Also, check out our card catalog of all “living book” volunteers on Flikr, and read more sneak previews at freelibrary.org/livinglibrary. This free event is open to all and is first come, first served--so come early!
