Frank Warren, the founder of the popular website PostSecret, will give an illustrated talk about his ongoing online project at 7:30 p.m. Monday, Oct. 15 at the Augusta Civic Center.
PostSecret is an ongoing community mail art project in which people mail their secrets anonymously on a homemade postcard. Select secrets are then posted on the PostSecret website, or used for PostSecret’s books or museum exhibits. The site regularly attracts seven million views per day, and the site has helped raise hundreds of thousands of dollars for the National Suicide Prevention Hotline. Warren has been featured in the New York Times, on CNN, The Today Show and Good Morning America, and has published five books from PostSecret submissions.
Tickets for Warren’s talk in Augusta are $20, and are available online at the UMA website.
