PostSecret founder Frank Warren to visit Salve Regina
Created by Frank Warren, PostSecret is an ongoing community art project where people mail in their secrets anonymously on one side of a homemade postcard. Select secrets are then posted on the PostSecret website or used for Warren’s books and museum exhibits.
Warren will give his multimedia presentation, “PostSecret Live,” at 7 p.m. Thursday, April 4 in the Bazarsky Lecture Hall. See the postcards that were banned from the books. Hear the inspiring and funny stories behind the secrets. Share your secret at the microphone.
The event is free for full-time undergraduate students and $5 for all others. Tickets are still available in the Office of Student Activities.
PostSecret invites completely anonymous people to decorate a postcard and portray a secret that they have never previously revealed. No restrictions are made on the secret’s contents, only that it must be completely truthful and must never have been spoken before. Entries range from admissions of sexual misconduct and criminal activity to confessions of secret desires, embarrassing habits, hopes and dreams.
Warren’s presentation will be followed by a book signing and his books will be available for purchase, including the New York Times bestseller “PostSecret: Confessions on Life, Death and God.”
