"L'age Licence as in: License to experience, mess up, license to fail, license to do...whatever, before you're settled." When comic artist Lucy is asked to speak at a comic conference in Norway, she takes the opportunity to travel all over Europe where she tries new food and wine, has a magical love affair, learns to shoot a blowgun, and experiences the thrills and anxieties of her age of license. Great read for graduates, twenty-somethings, or anyone in need of a l'age of license! ~ Reviewed by Jessica Elder

A Fork in the Road

If I could, I’d eat my way around the world like a Mrs. PacMan. But, since I can’t, I’ll settle for reading satiating tales like these. Pick this up if you’re two first loves are travel and food. ~ Reviewed by Bonnie Winchester
