Cannot get CSS in child theme to override parent

  • I’m trying to set up a child theme for my site. The theme I’m using is called Living Journal and the folder name is living-journal, so I created a new folder named “living-journal-child”. In “living-journal-child” I put a style.css file with this information in it,

    “/*
    Theme Name: living-journal-child
    Description: Child theme for the Twenty Eleven theme
    Author: JC
    Template: living-journal
    */

    @import url(“../living-journal/style.css”);

    But when I try and make changes, like the header for instance, the changes aren’t showing up when I refresh the page. Am I missing something?
