Two things I always look forward to over Christmas and the summer holidays are good food and a good book to read. In this issue, we’ve got a focus on both.
Our summer book special takes a look at the increasing popularity of book clubs and why we love them, and how books can be used to treat help mental health issues such as anxiety and depression. We also give you some top picks for beach reads this summer.
We visit some of the fanstastic new eateries and bars that have cropped up in Lismore post-flood, and find out how the food we eat can affect our moods and wellbeing. Food is also the focus of this issue’s travel section, as Bali-phile Jann Burmester takes us on a food-lovers tour of the Island of the Gods.
You’ll also find all of our regular features, including fashion, home and social photos from around the region in Style scene.
Enjoy the summer holidays and see you in 2019.
