Frank Warren: The World of Post Secret

Nov 26 2014 6:00 pm
Nov 26 2014 7:30 pm

An addictive collection of new full-color postcard secrets and app secrets from the author of the smash bestselling PostSecret books—with more secrets than any previous PostSecret book!

A decade ago, Frank Warren began a community art project that captured the popular imagination and became a worldwide obsession. He handed out postcards to strangers and left them in public places—asking people to share a secret they had never told anyone and mail them back to him anonymously. More than half a million secrets, 600 million hits to the award-winning PostSecret blog, and five huge bestsellers later, the PostSecret phenomenon is bigger than ever. By turns this funny, heartbreaking, thoughtful, and moving, this compendium of graphic haiku offers an intimate glimpse into both individual private lives and into our shared humanity.

Included in this compelling new book are dozens of the best archived secrets from the original PostSecret app; inside stories about the most controversial secrets Frank Warren has received; moving text from the new PostSecret play, foreign secrets, "puzzle" secrets, and much more!

Frank Warren discusses and signs his book, The World of Post Sercret.

This book is available in hardcover ($29.99).

Walter Isaacson: The Innovators: How a Group of Hackers, Geniuses, and Geeks Created a Digital Revolution At Newman School Auditorium, 5333 Danneel Street

Nov 29 2014 3:00 pm

Saturday, November 29th

At Newman School Auditorium, 5333 Danneel Street 

1-3PM 

 

What were the talents that allowed certain inventors and entrepreneurs to turn their visionary ideas into disruptive realities? What led to their creative leaps? Why did some succeed and others fail?

In his masterly saga, Isaacson begins with Ada Lovelace, Lord Byron’s daughter, who pioneered computer programming in the 1840s. He explores the fascinating personalities that created our current digital revolution, such as Vannevar Bush, Alan Turing, John von Neumann, J.C.R. Licklider, Doug Engelbart, Robert Noyce, Bill Gates, Steve Wozniak, Steve Jobs, Tim Berners-Lee, and Larry Page.

This is the story of how their minds worked and what made them so inventive. It’s also a narrative of how their ability to collaborate and master the art of teamwork made them even more creative.

Walter Isaacson discusses and signs his book, The Innovators: How a Group of Hackers, Geniuses, and Geeks Created a Digital Revolution. Walter will speak for 20-30 minutes, followed by a 15-minute question and answer session.  He will sign books afterward.

This book is available in hardcover ($35.00).

If you are unable to attend, you must call the book shop to order signed books.
