"Black Sunday"

SIOUX CENTER—Covenant Christian Reformed Church in Sioux Center will host a readers theater presentation of poems from “Black Sunday” at 5 p.m. Sunday Oct. 13.

“Black Sunday” is a book of poetry by a former poet laureate Benjamin Myers, who teaches at Oklahoma Baptist University in Shawnee.

Five characters recount their own Dust Bowl stories in a series of poems both heart-wrenching and hopeful.

The presentation will include Depression-era photographs as well as gospel music of the time.
