Post Secret: Confessions on Life, Death, and God
“For the past four years, Frank Warren, known as “the most trusted stranger in America,” has invited people all over the world to send him creatively decorated postcards bearing secrets they have never before revealed.
Warren’s fifth book presents a never-before-seen collection of the most personal PostSecrets he’s ever received—those dealing with life, death, and issues of faith and belief. The book lays bare the confessions of people at every stage of life, from every major faith (or from no faith). Warren’s latest collection of secrets is his most profoundly moving yet. “ -Goodreads
When I was in college, in 2013, Frank Warren came to my University and gave a presentation. Prior to his visit, I had no idea what PostSecret was . During his presentation I was tearing up, it is humbling to know that everyone has their own struggles, and nobody is ever truely alone. Around that time I marked some of his books as to-read on Goodreads, but never got around to them. It wasn’t until my Top Ten Tuesday last week that I remembered them. After I posted, I immediately requested the books from my library.
A Post Secret book is not one that takes vary long to read because most of the meaning comes from a combination of the secret giver’s words and art. If you didn’t realize, Post Secret is basically postcard sent to Frank Warren that reveal one’s secret. Occassionally the secrets are funny, some are serious, and many are tragic. What all of these secrets do is unite strangers. They reveal to everyone that they are not alone, no matter their situation there is probably someone, somewhere going through or had gone through the same thing.
Frank Warren posts a good portion of the secrets he recieves on his website http://www.postsecret.com While I have not sent in a secret, I am tempted to.
