The co-owner of Farley’s Bookshop in New Hope, Pa., died on September 23; she was 73. A former elementary school teacher, Nancy Stitchberry Farley founded the bookstore with her husband, Jim, in 1967 and built the store’s large children’s book section and also bought cards and gifts. “She was a delightful presence in her bookshop and great fun to lunch with. She was a perfect complement to her husband Jim; he the gruff, provocative public intellectual, she the sweet, funny mollifier,” commented Chris Kerr of Parson Weems. Donations in Farley’s memory may be made to the Alzheimer’s Association at P.O. Box 96011, Washington, D.C. 20090-6011.
