Narrated by Viola Davis

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 but also 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. We are forced to reinvent them to fit into a crazy, competitive, judgmental world. So I wrote this for anyone running through life untethered, desperate and clawing their way through murky memories, trying to get to some form of self-love. 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, a promise, and a love letter of sorts to self. 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.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Davis’s performance here is essentially a one-woman show, bringing listeners in close from the first moments…Her voice is vulnerable yet strong. The result is electric. Winner of the AudioFile Earphones Award.” AudioFile
“[A] fulfilling narrative of struggle and success…Her gorgeous storytelling will inspire anyone wishing to shed old labels.” Los Angeles Times
“Davis’s grit and determination are moving, and her unflinching reckoning with the ‘racism and misogyny’ she faced in Hollywood makes her story of overcoming all the more effective. Fans will be utterly enthralled.” Time
“This book is a testament to resilience, hard work, and the power of owning your truth.” Real Simple
“Brimming with love, heartbreak, and hard-won wisdom.” Bustle
“A more intimate, unpolished account than is typical of the average (often ghost-written) celebrity memoir; Finding Me reads like Davis is sitting you down for a one-on-one conversation about her life.” USA Today
“An unvarnished chronicle of hard-won, well-earned success.” Kirkus Reviews
