One of the Outstanding Personalities of Literary New York
Poet Editor Lecturer
MR. TOWNE is not only one of the best-known poets and editors in the country, but he knows how to read his verse, how to capture and hold his listeners. His running comments are always scintillating and charged with no little humor. His audiences invariably warm to him; perhaps for the reason that he himself has said that although he loves Nature in all her beautiful manifestations, he loves human nature even more.
Mr. Towne is the author of:
The Quiet Singer
Manhattan: A Poem
Youth; and Other Poems
Beyond the Stars
Today and Tomorrow
A World of Windows
Shaking Hands with England
Loafing Down Long Island
This New York of Mine
Good Old Yesterday: A Novel
Mr. Towne has two lectures, equally popular:
Poetry, Past and Present
with readings from his favorite poets, followed by selections from his own books.
Adventures in Editing
an anecdotal talk that never fails to fascinate audiences, followed by readings of his own poems.
