About this item
In LOCAL HEROES, Penn Kemp celebrates legendary cultural heroes from London Ontario. These poems evoke a specific city in its particular landscape and history. Kemp documents London's literary and artistic heritage in honouring artists in fields ranging from visual through the word to figure skating. Presented as an overview, the collection stretches from Victoria explorer Teresa Harris to the contemporary arts scene. Local Heroes acknowledges the Indigenous peoples here, and the ongoing waves of settlers who have called the area home, as London grows from colonial outpost to vibrant cultural centre. Local Heroes spans time but remains in place.
