She produced the documentary Whoopi Goldberg Presents Moms Mabley, and she appeared in and was one of the producers of the critically acclaimed 2022 feature film Till.

Reviews

"Bits and Pieces shows the rise of a beloved performer, and is a tribute to the loved ones who supported her along the way."

-- "People"

"Anyone reading Whoopi's book Bits and Pieces will come away, as Whoopi puts it, 'knowing how to share the earth with other people' better than they had before. Thanks, Whoopi."

-- "Barry Josephson, producer"

"A rare gem among many ho-hum celebrity memoirs."

-- "New York Journal of Books"

"Goldberg relays the untold stories of her early years, starting with the projects in New York City. This sentimental story about family, identity, and determination was written after the loss of both her mother and brother. Much of the story describes the incredible guidance and opportunity her mother provided her, despite the trials and tribulations they experienced."

-- "Bookstr"

"Whoopi Goldberg is getting ready to give folks an intimate look at her life...When fans learned the Sister Act alum would be publishing another book, they immediately rushed to the comments to congratulate her."

-- "Good Housekeeping"

"A poignant, enjoyable, and moving read...Readers will want to call their parents after finishing this behind-the-scenes look at the life of a major entertainer."

-- "Kirkus Reviews"

"This is no dishy Hollywood tell-all--it's a salve for wounded souls."

-- "Publishers Weekly"

"[Whoopi's] new memoir is an emotional and uplifting exploration as, with her unique voice and trademark wit, she reflects on the people, places, and experiences that have made her the multi-award-winning icon she is today...Goldberg's fan base will be avid for the mix of memoir and guidance."
