The PostSecret phenomenon began in 2004 when Frank Warren began leaving blank post cards in public locations asking people to mail in their secrets. This small-scale community art project launched into a worldwide movement almost immediately.
So far there are 5 published books full of secrets written on homemade post cards. There is a certain type of therapy that can come out of sharing a difficult secret or burden. Some read these interesting books for entertainment while some read them for self-help. Even in the library catalogue they vary in what their classifications are.
Whatever your reason for checking out the PostSecret books your sure to be entertained, shocked or enlightened.
If you find yourself wanting to delve deeper into the PostSecret world, there’s a lot of things you can do in the PostSecret Community. The movement is also currently on tour, check out these upcoming events.
