HARRIS, Rosa




Author Tags: Non-Fiction

Born in 1950, Rosa Harris is the consummate baby boomer. Articles, clothing, attitudes, mores and inventions have all been fashioned to her taste. Her generation faces the stereotype portraying them as entitled navel-gazers who can't deal with the fact that the 1960s are over. They may be right, but she was nevertheless prompted to write Boomerville: Musings on a Generation that Refuses to Go Quietly in hopes of opening a dialogue with other groups of demographics.

Harris, a journalist, essayist, editor and teacher, is the winner of two National Magazine Awards and was one of two people short-listed for a Canada-U.S. Fulbright Award for journalism. She got her start at The Sherbrooke Record, Conrad Black's first daily newspaper, where she happily sparred with the publisher over political issues.
