Highlights included a group photo with a ruddy-faced Commodore John Barry of the United States Navy, witnessing the legendary Kareem Abdul-Jabbar sign posters, and otherwise standing around hawking our cool travel mugs and telling teachers from around the country the good news of Encyclopedia Virginia.
