PostSecret Creator to Speak at UW
September 14, 2009 — Frank Warren, founder of the popular community mail art project "PostSecret," will speak at the University of Wyoming Arts and Sciences auditorium Wednesday, Sept. 23, at 8 p.m.
Tickets are available for $3 at the Wyoming Union information desk and the Fine Arts Center box office. They also are available by phone at (307) 766-6666 or online at www.uwyo.edu/finearts.
Warren, known as "the most trusted stranger in America," created the PostSecret Web site in 2005 to provide an anonymous place for people to send in a decorated postcard with a secret they have never revealed. Entries range from admissions of sexual misconduct and criminal activity to confessions of secret desires, embarrassing habits, hopes and dreams.
"I talk about my secret--an experience I never spoke of for more than three decades and eventually drove me to start collecting secrets from strangers," writes Warren on the PostSecret Facebook page. "And at the end of each event, we listen to the soulful, sexual or silly secrets from audience members."
The site has posted thousands of postcard secrets and led to four
books that include selected postcards, with a fifth book set to be
released later this year.
For more information, contact the Campus Activities Center at (307) 766-6340. The event is sponsored by the Student Activities Council.
