600 I St NW, Washington, District of Columbia 20001
The daughter of a Burmese mother and a white American father, Alex Wagner—an anchor and correspondent for CBS News and a contributing editor at The Atlantic—grew up thinking of herself as a “futureface”—an avatar of a mixed-race future when all races would merge into a brown singularity. But when one family mystery led to another, Wagner’s post-racial ideals began to fray as she became obsessed with the specifics of her own family’s racial and ethnic history.

Drawn into the wild world of ancestry, Futureface: A Family Mystery, an Epic Quest, and the Secret to Belonging chronicles Wagner’s quest around the world—and into her own DNA—as she searches for answers to the mystery of her own ancestry and to the ultimate questions of who she really is and where she belongs. Along the way, the journalist raises deeper questions about the American experience of race, immigration, exile, and identity. Book signing to follow. With The Atlantic.
