John C. King graduated from Goochland High School and then went on to attend the University of Richmond where he received his degree.
He is married with two sons and has one grandson.
John was a food service manager for most of his career in the Richmond Va area. He owned and operated four small local Richmond restaurants for over 20 years. In 2011, he sold his last concept so that he could retire. He then decided to work part time for catering services at the University of Richmond.
Due to John’s passion for books, he then left the restaurant industry entirely to work part-time at a used bookstore in Charlottesville VA. When that store closed abruptly in September of 2017, John bought most of their collection and opened his own used bookstore, Never Enough Books, in Richmond VA in February of 2019.
