Event Description

(Free Admission)
Author Frank Warren is the creator of the blog phenomenon The PostSecret Project, a collection of highly personal and artfully decorated postcards mailed anonymously from around the world, displaying the soulful secrets we never voice. The website for PostSecret is one of the most popular on the web, and has been featured prominently in the media in USA Today, on the Today Show, 20/20, CNN, MSNBC, CBC, NPR, and FOX News. In 2009, Forbes listed Frank Warren as the 4th most influential person on the internet, the PostSecret website has received 450 million hits and has won six Weblog Awards including "Blog of the Year." In 2012, Warren was honored by the Webby Awards for "People's Voice Winner in NetArt."

PostSecret originated from a community art project based on a simple concept: asking people to anonymously send a secret on a decorated postcard. Since November 2004, Warren has received more than 500,000 postcards, with secrets spanning from sexual taboos and criminal activity to confessions of secret beliefs, hidden acts of kindness, shocking habits, and fears. Frank Warren thinks of PostSecret as a safe and anonymous "place" where people can hear unheard voices and share untold stories.

Frank Warren has released several books based on the project, including New York Times best-seller, PostSecret: Extraordinary Confessions from Ordinary Lives. In October 2009, he released the PostSecret book, PostSecret: Confessions on Life, Death, and God, which quickly reached #1 on the New York Times best-seller list. Today, Warren travels throughout the country as part of PostSecret, and continually adds to the project exploring the hidden secrets inside us all.
