In Conversation

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 Such bewitching is the basis of her new book, Audubon’s Sparrow: A Biography in Poems (2020), which relies on historical documents and Dowd’s imagination to explore the life of Lucy Bakewell Audubon, wife of the naturalist and artist John James Audubon.
