A Sunday in God-Years takes its title from the notion that inside the long stretch of geologic time, human history happens in the blink of God's eye as he rolls over during a Sunday nap. Michelle Boisseau traced some of her own family history back to a Virginia plantation for her fourth collection that is centered around the long poem, "A Reckoning." Made up of 15 sections, it explores the connections between the heirs of slaveholders and slaves, and the repercussions felt in today's society. Programs with Michelle Boisseau from 1996, 2007, and 2017 are also available in our audio archives.
