In this video, Oprah announces Finding Me
by Viola Davis, as her latest Oprah's Book Club selection.
In her powerful and empowering memoir, the first Black actor to earn the so-called "Triple Crown of Acting"—an Oscar, a Tony and an Emmy—details her rise from poverty and other trauma to emerge as an iconic American artist.
About the pick—which is the 95th for OBC—Oprah had this to say: "There are so many lessons to be learned from this breathtaking memoir about triumphing over adversity and trauma. Viola Davis leaves it all on the page—from her beginnings in South Carolina as the fifth of six children born in a sharecropper's shack to acclaim as an actor, producer and philanthropist. I was so moved by this book that I just had to share it with our entire OBC audience."
On Monday, May 2, Oprah will begin a series of weekly conversations around Finding Me
. Readers can participate by going on the Oprah's Book Club Instagram
using @OprahsBookClub #ReadWithUs.
