Viola Davis’, Finding Me offers an in-depth look at the acclaimed actress’ life and legacy
Finding Me is an eye-opening, inspirational memoir about acclaimed actress Viola Davis’ life as she shares how she found her purpose and strength through the struggles she had to overcome.
About the Book In the 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 her story, from a crumbling apartment in Central Falls, Rhode Island, to the stage in New York City, and beyond. This is the path she took to finding my purpose but also her voice in a world that didn’t always see her.
As she wrote Finding Me, her 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 she 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. Her 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.
