teen read: art

PostSecret is an ongoming community art project begun by Frank Warren. Anyone is welcome to write their secrets on one side of a postcard and mail it to Frank. Funny, chilling, and often close to home, sharing secrets is powerful. The secrets have been compiled into book form. Check our library collection for all the PostSecret books. Maybe you have one to share?

Thanks to Central Teen Reader Caitlin for this wonderful visual book review.
