Sam Zimmerman

  • Leah Lemm brings us episode 39 of Northern Voices. For her conversation this week, Leah visits with Sam Zimmerman, an artist and author of the recent book Following My Spirit Home, published by Black Bears and Blueberries publishing. In their conversation, Sam tells the story that inspired one of his paintings, where as a child, his father tried to trick his grandmother to get out of berry picking. Click the player above to hear the whole story and learn more about Sam's art, what he learned from the pandemic, and what drew him home to the place of his family.
