Join us at Glad Day Bookshop for Trans Girl Supernova Part 2, a brilliant constellation of superstar writers lighting up the literary landscape. Arielle Twist launches her debut poetry collection Disintegrate/Dissociate with special guests Kim Ninkuru, Gwen Benaway (Holy Wild) and Kai Cheng Thom (I Hope We Choose Love).
In her powerful debut collection, Disintegrate/Dissociate, Arielle Twist unravels the complexities of human relationships after death and metamorphosis. In these spare yet powerful poems, she explores, with both rage and tenderness, the parameters of grief, trauma, displacement and identity. Weaving together a past made murky by uncertainty and a present that exists in multitudes, Twist poetically navigates through what it means to be an Indigenous trans woman, discovering the possibilities of a hopeful future and a transcendent, beautiful path to regaining softness.
