JUDITHA DOWD with Ruth Foley
Pennsylvania poet Juditha Dowd is, in her own words, perpetually bewitched by the narratives we devise to re-imagine ourselves and the lives of others. Such bewitching is the basis of her new book, Audubons Sparrow: A Biography in Poems (2020), which relies on historical documents and Dowds imagination to explore the life of Lucy Bakewell Audubon, wife of the naturalist and artist John James Audubon.
