Local author to hold book signing
Tiedemann grew up in Trenton before she and her family moved to Bordentown, and the opportunities to get outside were “scant,” she said. She developed a fear of exploring around outside, and that fear got in the way as she grew older and yearned to travel. Despite her anxiety, Tiedemann eventually started exploring the wilderness.
She wrote the book to help those who have similar fears, both practical (wildlife, transportation, weather) and internal (being far from help, heights, emergencies).
“Feeling apprehensive or anxious about things, and talking about them, can be a little taboo, so I thought I’d start the conversation,” she said.
Tiedemann, 28, is a Bordentown Regional High School alum. She, her husband, her parents and her sister all still live in Bordentown.
