Juditha Dowd's mixed-genre, verse biography Audubon's Sparrow is forthcoming in 2020 from Rose Metal Press. Told in the voice of Lucy Bakewell Audubon, the naturalist's spirited young wife, it follows their journeys and adventures along the Ohio and Mississippi Rivers in the early 1800s, a period marked by constant challenges and rapid change. Juditha is the author of a full-length poetry collection, Mango in Winter, as well as poetry chapbooks, short fiction, and lyric essays. She reads with Cool Women, an ensemble performing in the New York-New Jersey-Philadelphia area and occasionally on the west coast. Visit their site at https://coolwomenpoets.org. With her husband and two Maine Coon cats Juditha lives in Easton, Pennsylvania, near the Delaware River.
