WYOMISSING, Pa. — The founder and author of PostSecret, Frank Warren, will visit Penn State Berks virtually via Zoom at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, Sept. 30, to discuss the power of sharing your hopes, dreams, fears and failures, and how PostSecret became the reason for his passionate commitment to mental health advocacy.
What started as a community mail art project — in which people anonymously shared never-before-voiced secrets — has since captured a collective imagination and evolved into a worldwide phenomenon.
With several New York Times best-selling books, national art exhibits, and an album, Warren’s PostSecret website has become the most visited ad-free blog in the world, honored with multiple Webby awards for “Best Blog on the Internet.”
PostSecret has also raised over a million dollars for suicide prevention and earned Warren a Mental Health Advocacy Lifetime Achievement Award.
This event is sponsored by the Penn State Berks Arts and Lecture series. For more information, contact the Office of Campus Life at 610-396-6076.
