Inukshut – Kevin Acott

Inukshut is the second chapbook in Kevin Acott’s series as he travels down from Vancouver to San Francisco via Seattle, Washington State and Oregon.

“In March this year, I went to a First Nations restaurant in Vancouver and had one of the best meals of my life. While I was waiting to be served, the manager bought me a book to read. It was a book about the systematic removal, abuse and stripping of identity of hundreds of thousands of First Nations, Metis and Inuit children in Canada. Earlier that day, I’d been reading on the Guardian website about the forced deportation of children from the UK to Australia and the discovery of the remains of hundreds of  babies in a mass grave in Tuam in Galway.  I found myself momentarily resenting the bloke in the restaurant for showing me the book: all I wanted was an ‘exotic’ meal…”
Kevin Acott

Kevin Acott is a London-based model, cult singer, poet and astronaut. He’s currently having a few months off to wander about a bit, take photos, hang around, watch, be watched, talk, listen, write down everything everyone says to him, worry about injuries to Spurs players and eat cheese.

This book is dedicated to Misha, to the Salmon ‘n’ Bannock in Vancouver and to the survivors, families, journalists and supporters who are keeping the fight going.

Fire – Harriet Bradley, Sogol Sur and Rosie Rosenberg

Today Confronting Rape Culture open their big exhibition at the Museum of Futures and here at Sampson Low we are releasing the fifth chapbook in the CFC Series (edited by Debbie Chessell) to celebrate this achievement. We welcome Harriet Bradley to the series, her narrative is the adrenalin of fear, it is a drug of wonder but should it be an everyday occurrence, an inspiration, a reality. This is the third entry in the powerful CFC series for Sogol Sur and once again the work sparks brightly, shining right at the heart of the sun. It is fitting that we should end on a note of hope from Rosie Rosenberg. We would like to say a big thank you to Debbie Chessell and all the creative people who have contributed to his project.
