We began with "Famous Johns," a category that includes "John Adams" by Pulitzer Prize winner David McCullough, "The Day John Died" by Christopher Andersen and "John Winthrop: America's Forgotten Founding Father" by Francis J. Bremer. Come to the sale to find a large selection of other books about or by famous Johns . . . in addition to novels, collections of poems, plays, books on Virginia, history books, books on film and dance, cookbooks, scientific and medical books and travel books. There are also CDs, DVDs, LPs and other media.
