Paul Clemente

Author's Bio

Paul Clemente was born and raised on the banks of the Hudson River. He is young enough to have missed Woodstock and old enough to remember the mothballed WW II fleet moored in Haverstraw Bay. He is a scientist with the NYS Department of Environmental Conservation. Paul is the director of Read for Food, a not-for-profit reading series which raises food and money for food pantries in the Hudson Valley. He lives in Esopus, New York with his wife and two sons. He has just published his first chapbook, "Luncheonette," with a menu containing twenty sonnets.
