The girl from the fourth generation

Click on image to enlarge
In my book, The ‘Starting Out’ Years, the fourth story is about Lisa Browning, a composite character who is (almost entirely) one of my daughters.

Lisa, who was born in Colorado in 1972, is pictured on the left, a drama student at Cawthra Park Secondary School in Mississauga, as she will appear on the book cover, along with the other five girls.  She probably didn’t wear jeans and floppy shirts all the time, but the arts school students sure dressed more casually than we ever did, and may even have been prescient in adopting the 21st century designer look, sporting holes in everything.

The story of the girl from the fifth generation, Fiona Livingstone, was in my July 2 blog post, Phase 2 of BC’s Restart Plan. Next week I’ll talk about the girl from the sixth generation.
