The creator of PostSecret to speak in Peoria
July 1, 2010
Frank Warren, the creator of Post Secret, will be in Peoria on November 17, 2009. Post Secret, originally a blog and now in book form, is a collection of anonymous post cards on which people have shared their most private secrets. Visually engaging, sometimes funny, sad, or heart wrenching, this archive of secrets is an engrossing project that simultaneously serves as personal catharsis and sociological study of human nature.
As Frank writes himself...
I share the inspirational and funny stories behind some of the quarter million secrets I have received on postcards. I project images of the secrets that were banned from the four PostSecret books. 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. And I always save time to answer questions and listen to the soulful, humorous and sometime sexual secrets from the audience.
The event will be held at the Embassy Suites Hotel & Riverfront Conference Center on Tuesday, November 17, from 7:00 - 9:00pm.
