USA Today gives a review of Viola’s memoir which is topping the best seller lists! Be sure to go get your copy now!

Viola Davis’ raw and moving memoir “Finding Me” (HarperOne, 304 pp.) finds itself at No. 1 on USA TODAY’s Best-Selling Books list this week.

The Oscar-, Emmy- and Tony award-winning thespian, the first Black woman to win the acting triple crown, shares her personal story of overcoming a childhood filled with poverty and dysfunction to become one of the most celebrated artists of her generation.

Now considered Hollywood royalty, the actress pulls no punches telling her story. According to USA TODAY, “it’s clear from the first page that Davis is going to serve 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, warts and all.”

Oprah Winfrey chose the memoir for her book club and said “Finding Me” had a big impact on her. “After I finished reading the first paragraph, I knew this was a book I wanted to share with the world,” Winfrey said in a statement. “I am in awe that Viola overcame all that she did to not only survive but become a role model for the world as a renowned actress, a mother, a wife and the woman that she is today.”
