While not an AUCian, Humphreys has known the University on and off for around 30 years. He has spent a lot of time on campus visiting the AUC bookstore, attending exhibitions and events, and just relaxing by the fountains.
“AUC is full of amazing stories. I have encountered some fascinating people and events, and I hope that the finished book conveys the excitement I have experienced while working on this project.”
