Sunday Memories: Our Children's Stories

The bookshelf with all the Charles Addams books was in the adult section of the Seward Park Library. On the occasions I went with Florence she'd park me on a little wooden stool used by bigger people to reach higher places, stick a Charles Addams book in my hands, and then drift off to somewhere else.

I would sit there for hours, pouring over every picture, believing the secrets of life were being revealed to me.
