Product Details


“LaTonya Yvette weaves together reflections and photography from some of the sweetest of life’s offerings: the intimacy of home, parenting, art, memory, and a glimpse at an interiority that comes across as both sacred and true. It feels like a window, indeed, a generous, three-dimensional portrait—that inspires the reader to reflect on their own sense of home and belonging.”—Rio Cortez, New York Times bestselling author of Golden Ax

“Stand in My Window is thoughtful and liberating—full of heart and careful observations that encourage readers to pay attention to both the rhythms of their inner lives and the mundane realities of everyday life. I found myself pausing to take deeper breaths, to meditate on my surroundings and ask myself what is giving me a sense of belonging, where and when do I feel safest and what is bringing me the most joy? This beautiful book is one I will be gifting and returning to.”—Aminatou Sow, New York Times bestselling coauthor of Big Friendship

“Stand in My Window is not merely a collection of essays; it is a meditation on the essence of home—a sanctuary shaped by memory, aspiration, and the echoes of generations past. With each page, readers are invited to contemplate the intersections of identity, justice, and the eternal quest for hope. In a world marked by upheaval and uncertainty, LaTonya’s book offers solace and inspiration, reminding us that amidst the chaos, there exists a refuge within ourselves—a place to stand in our truth, to reclaim our narratives, and to welcome the journey toward home.”—Hawa Hassan, James Beard award-winning author of In Bibi’s Kitchen

“LaTonya Yvette’s new book, Stand in My Window, is a living and breathing meditation where the author, with great love and care, guides us to think deeply and historically about notions of home, motherhood, the earth, legacy, and experiences of Black womanhood. A bricolage of literary, historical, and personal narratives, this multilayered book is one I will return to again and again as I contemplate my own home and garden, the objects in it and my life and history as a woman who seeks to live and work within an ethic of care.”—Lyn Slater, author of How to Be Old
