A conversation with physician-poet Parker Towle, M.D.

Parker Towle, a neurologist who has been on the Dartmouth Medical School faculty for more than 25 years, is also a much-published poet. He has a book of poems coming out soon, and his work was recently featured on National Public Radio's Writer's Almanac. He talks here about the thrill of hearing one of his poems read by Garrison Keillor; about how he got started writing poetry; about what has kept him at it; and about the relationship between poetry and medicine.
