A touching and stunningly illustrated ode to the homes--and loved ones--that raise us, perfect for fans of Black Is a Rainbow Color, Saturday, and Last Stop on Market Street.

While her mother puts the finishing touches on her twists, a young girl asks what it means to be "homegrown". Touring precious memories and lively rooms warmed by family, Mama and Granny explain that home isn't just a place, but rather a reflection of people who support and love one another.

With lush, cozy illustrations, Homegrown is a beautiful author-illustrator debut picture book that reminds us to lift up the places--and people--we call home.


DeAnn Wiley is a self-taught illustrator with a master's degree in counseling psychology born and raised in Detroit, Michigan. She advocates for social justice from the intersection of multiple identities--Black, Woman, Queer, and Disabled-- and she stands in solidarity with other marginalized communities outside of her own. When she's not painting, she's learning, growing, and healing, with each phase of her journey depicted in her art. She is the illustrator of Sarah Rising and the Sunday Adventures series; Homegrown is her author-illustrator debut.
