Sandra McLeod Humphrey

We were saddened to learn today of the death of local children's author Sandra McLeod Humphrey and her husband Brian Humphrey, who both died in a house fire on Nov. 23rd.

You may remember that Sandy was one of the authors who was at our grand opening in September.  Brian was there as well, and they were two of the nicest, kindest people.  We were also lucky enough to spend time with Sandy earlier this month at the Teen Literature Network kickoff.  

Both Sandy and Brian loved animals very much, and for their memorial service it was asked that donations be made to the Hennepin County Humane Society in lieu of sending flowers. We would like to do our part to honor the memory of the Humphreys, so 100% of the proceeds from Sandy's books purchased from our store will be donated to the Hennepin County Humane Society.  We have the following books available:

Brian and Sandy's children wrote a touching tribute to their parents on Sandy's blog that describes beautifully just how many people's lives are better for having met them
