Juditha Dowd's verse biography, AUDUBON'S SPARROW, is told in the voice of Lucy Bakewell Audubon, the remarkable but little-known wife of naturalist John James Audubon. It follows the couple through the extraordinary early years of their long relationship, a journey marked by  heroism, poverty, perseverance and love amidst the constant challenges of the American frontier. An illuminating back-story for what was to become Audubon's masterwork, The Birds of America. Available now at https://rosemetalpress.com/books/audubons-sparrow/  

     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 the Cool Women ensemble in the New York-New Jersey-Philadelphia area and occasionally on the west coast. 

     With her husband and two Maine Coon cats Juditha lives in Easton, Pennsylvania, near the Delaware River.
