The Triumph And Tragedy Of Lisa Frank

By Anna North

Pollock and Basquiat got their biopics — now it’s time for another artistic visionary to lend her life to the silver screen. Brought to you by the Upright Citizens Brigade and Diamonds Wow, the story of Lisa Frank’s misunderstood genius, meteoric rise, and heroic stand against the philistines of a school supplies conglomerate is sure to be a major Oscar contender. Your heart will soar like a flying purple dolphin when Lisa says her famous line: “No one’s going to trap me, and no one’s going to keep me!”

    I still own my Lisa Frank sticker collection, and I refused to let my mother throw them out last year. I am a college student.
