Postsecret founder Frank Warren to speak at Northwest Sept. 27

Frank Warren, creator of the popular community mail art project and website known as PostSecret, will share his story with an audience at Northwest Missouri State University.

The presentation, "PostSecret Live," will begin at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 27, in the Charles Johnson Theater, located inside the Olive DeLuce Fine Arts Building. The event, which is free and open to the public, is sponsored by the Student Activities Council as part of its SAC Speaks series.

Tickets were made available to Northwest students Tuesday, Sept. 6, and tickets will be available for the public, starting Monday, Sept. 12. All tickets may be picked up at the Student Services Center.

Since 2004, Frank Warren, dubbed "the most trusted stranger in America," has invited people all over the world to send him creatively decorated 4-by-6 inch postcards bearing secrets they have never before revealed. He has shared these "PostSecrets" on his blog, in an internationally traveling art exhibit, and in four electrifying and bestselling books - "PostSecret," "My Secret," "The Secret Lives of Men and Women," and "A Lifetime of Secrets."

"PostSecret Live" is a multimedia presentation that includes postcards banned from Warren's books mixed with inspiring and funny stories behind the secrets. Warren's books will be available for purchase afterward, and audience members will have an opportunity to meet him.

The PostSecret blog can be viewed online at Fans may also RSVP to the lecture on a Facebook event page created by Warren.
