We all have secrets. Hell, I’ve got several bodies in my basement right now!
I’m kidding, of course. I don’t have a basement. So I had to use the closet. And thanks to PostSecret, I can share my secret with the world anonymously! The creator of this fantastic media outlet will be here next month. Here’s the info from UU:
University Union Performing Arts will host a speech and signing with Frank Warren, creator of PostSecret, on October 20th. Frank Warren will be speaking in the Goldstein Auditorium in Schine Student Center at 8 p.m., doors at 7:30 p.m. He will be discussing his experiences as the creator of the popular website PostSecret and his feelings on the importance of having a medium to communicate secrets. University Union Performing Arts is a sub-division of University Union.
PostSecret is a project that encourages individuals to anonymously mail in decorated postcards stating their secrets. Since its launch in 2004, Warren has received over 400,000 postcards. PostSecret has been featured on the Today Show, 20/20, CNN, MSNBC, CBC, NPR, and FOX News. The PostSecret website was recently named Weblog of the Year in the Seventh Annual Weblog Awards. Frank Warren has published a number of books based on his PostSecret project, including The New York Times bestseller PostSecret: Extraordinary Confessions from Ordinary Lives.
The 90-minute presentation, Frank Warren: The Most Trusted Stranger In America, will culminate in a signing. Books will be available for purchase at the signing table inside Schine Student Center.
