The late Miss Lou lives on through the stories, pictures and paint on the walls of her room, opened yesterday in her honour on the second floor of the Harbourfront Centre.
The poet and Jamaican icon who made Toronto her home in her later years, had a room dedicated to her last night. Painted in turquoise and orange, with a patio overlooking the lake, the Miss Lou room will host tens of thousands of school-age children, her stories of the trickster spider-man Anansi to watch over art and cooking classes for generations to come.
