Have a secret eating you alive? This guy wants to hear it.
The University of Dayton Counseling Center, Community Wellness Services, and Active Minds are co-sponsoring the founder of PostSecret, Frank Warren, on a lecture about his community art project gone worldwide and his life's work in suicide prevention. The event is part of UD's participation in the nationally recognized Suicide Prevention Week.
The "PostSecret Live" series is a multimedia event by Warren, featuring a collection of highly personal secrets on artfully decorated postcards mailed anonymously from around the world.
From deep family secrets to funny reflections, the project has warranted several books, speaking engagements, and even a live play. In his presentations, Warren discusses why the blog is important, and why he has made suicide awareness part of his life's work.
Audiences will also get to see postcards that were banned from the books, and have the opportunity to share their own secrets live during the interactive program. A book signing will immediately follow his talk.
According to the Facebook event page, all UD Speaker Series events are free and open to the public. No tickets are required, but seating is limited and on a first-come, first-served basis. Parking is available in B and C lots only. Parking in any other campus lot requires a permit.
