‘I was a spunky, sassy mess’ – Listen to Viola Davis read an excerpt from her new memoir Finding Me
 More about the book!

Viola Davis’s Finding Me is a timeless and spellbinding memoir that will capture hearts and minds around the globe.

The eagerly anticipated autobiography from the multi-award winning actor and producer traces an inspirational path from Davis’s upbringing in Rhode Island to her critically acclaimed performances in Hollywood and on Broadway.

In my book, you will meet a little girl named Viola who ran from her past until she made a life changing decision to stop running forever.

This is my story, from a crumbling apartment in Central Falls, Rhode Island, to the stage in New York City, and beyond. This is the path I took to finding my purpose and my strength, but also to finding my voice in a world that didn’t always see me.

As I wrote Finding Me, my eyes were open to the truth of how our stories are often not given close examination. They are bogarted, reinvented to fit into a crazy, competitive, judgmental world. So I wrote this for anyone who is searching for a way to understand and overcome a complicated past, let go of shame, and find acceptance. For anyone who needs reminding that a life worth living can only be born from radical honesty and the courage to shed facades and be … you.

Finding Me is a deep reflection on my past and a promise for my future. My hope is that my story will inspire you to light up your own life with creative expression and rediscover who you were before the world put a label on you.
