Author Sam McLeod, known to his Washington and Lee law school classmates as Steve Johnson of the Class of 1981, has just published his newest book, Big Appetite: My Southern-Fried Search for Life. It’s his fourth book, following a trilogy Welcome to Walla Walla, Bottled Walla and Blue Walla. The next edition of the W&L Law Alumni Magazine will have additional details about the books and author.
In the meantime, you’ll find some entertaining examples of Steve’s writing on Sam’s Blog at the Sam McLeod website, where he writes about everything from his publisher’s insistence that he get a cell phone that both Tweets and Facebooks to tales of life on Detour Farm where he lives near Walla Walla, Wash.
Steve’s writing has also led him to a new gig as a storyteller, which he has been doing in front of all different kinds of audiences in his home state. To get a sense of what those stories are like, have a look at this YouTube video:
