CBS News Anchor and correspondent discusses her new book, Futureface

As the daughter of a Burmese mother and a white American father, Alex Wagner grew up thinking of herself as a “futureface”—an avatar of a mixed-race future when all races would merge into a brown singularity. Drawn into the wild world of ancestry, she embarks upon a quest around the world—and into her own DNA—to answer the ultimate questions of who she really is and where she belongs. Wagner is anchor and correspondent for CBS News, a contributing editor at The Atlantic, and author of Futureface: A Family Mystery, an Epic Quest, and the Secret to Belonging
