Book Launch: LaTonya Yvette presents Woman of Color
In conversation with Julee Wilson
Wine reception to follow
Greenlight is excited to host blogger and stylist LaTonya Yvette for the launch of her debut book Woman of Color: part memoir, part lifestyle guide—packed with moving essays, gorgeous original and archival photographs, and practical style and beauty advice. At the very heart, the book is about LaTonya’s experience growing up as a woman of color in Brooklyn. Each beautifully designed chapter covers a different topic—the meaning behind her name, how vitiligo has shaped her definition of beauty, her childhood hairstyles, raising her children as a 20-something mom—and ends with thoughtful advice and lifestyle takeaways like how to tie a headwrap or incorporate new, bold colors into your wardrobe. Woman of Color is real life, real style for women from all walks of life. LaTonya has written a love letter to women, filling this book with vulnerable, imperfect truths from a black woman blogger, a voice not often seen on bookstore shelves. LaTonya discusses her book at Greenlight with Julee Wilson, Fashion & Beauty Director at Essence Magazine, followed by a wine reception to celebrate the book's launch.
