Be Beautiful

An MSMC Library Week Event

"Be Beautiful” is a uJennifer Circostanique and compelling collection of visual and aural poetry by Mount Saint Mary College alumna, Jennifer Circosta. Jennifer’s writing exposes her theatrical and academic background. It is visual in that she employs multiple fonts, sizes, and colors on the printed page. Her composition also makes creative and meaningful use of couplets, rhyme schemes, and alliteration. Be Beautiful speaks about an inner path toward empowerment, reminding the reader that what you strive for within - - already exists all around you. It is a passionate ride through the soul and a simple reminder to BE BEAUTIFUL.

Jennifer Circosta, Brooklyn born and bred, now resides in Campbell Hall. Since childhood, she acted, designed, and created her own dramas. Jennifer studied criminal justice at Rockland Community College, and is a graduate of the American Academy of Dramatic Arts in New York City. She holds a bachelor’s degree in psychology from the Mount. Jennifer’s first book was the children’s story, The Many Tails of Luck-shmee.

Jennifer Circosta will read from Be Beautiful on Tuesday, April 5th, at 4 p.m. in Room 218 of the Kaplan Family Library. Books will be available for sale and signing after the reading. Jennifer’s appearance is co-sponsored by the MSMC Division of Arts & Letters and Kaplan Library. Light refreshments will be served.
