Northern Rivers Style - - WELCOME - KATE O’NEILL [email protected]­ern­

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.
