Had fun talking secrets, race, mothering and belonging with Michelle Miller during her first book signing. Michelle Miller is a co-host of "CBS Saturday Morning." Her work regularly appears on "CBS Mornings," "CBS Sunday Morning" and the "CBS Evening News." She also files reports for "48 Hours" and anchors Discovery's "48 Hours on ID" and "Hard Evidence."
