Book Spotlight: PostSecret

Frank Warren, the creator of PostSecret, started an art project in November 2004.  It was simple, he handed out postcards asking people to send him their secret.  It can be any secret as long as it was true and something they have never told anyone.  He was surprised when he received thousands upon thousands of postcards telling him a secret.  He has compiled some of the postcards and displayed them in art shows, other postcards are posted to a website, www.postsecret.blogspot.com and others were compiled into books.  The secrets are funny, serious and sad.  Its amazing how creative the postcards are.  The library owns PostSecret, the original book and My Secret.  My Secret compiles secrets from high schoolers and college students.   Anyone can share a secret.  If you want to send your postcard to:  PostSecret, 13345 Copper Ridge Road, Germantown, Maryland 20874.  Will you send in your secret for art?!?
