Fiction Book of the Month:

The Broken Wave by Matthew Ryan Davies

We LOVED The Broken Wave. we loved Davies compelling, heartfelt and gripping narrative which kept us turning the pages until the very end

in Davies' words: The Broken Wave is about an American author called Drew who flies to Australia for the funeral of a childhood friend, Tom, that’s taking place in the real-life Victorian seaside town of Queenscliff.

Drew lived in Queenscliff as a 12-year-old, and that’s when he became great mates with Tom. But a traumatic event cut short their time together and he returned to the States.

That was in 1992. Now it’s 2018 and Drew is back in Queenscliff.

He’s come for Tom’s funeral but, really, he’s there to finally deal with this trauma that been haunting him for so long and to try to work out whether it has any connection to Tom’s death.

Multi-award-winning scientific futurist Dr Catherine Ball takes us on an astounding journey through the next big technology breakthroughs that have the potential to positively shape our world.

As we face challenges globally on multiple fronts, it’s refreshing to hear the positive voice of scientific futurist Dr Catherine Ball. In Converge she presents insights into how technology and science are providing answers to many of the challenges the world is facing today – food shortages, war and conflict, the decline in local manufacturing, health and ageing, and global warming – and asks why we are not embracing these technologies more widely.

The answer in many cases is, ‘Because we don’t know about them!’ Well, now we do. Dr Catherine opens our eyes to the amazing, wide world of technological advancements and explores the role we all have in learning more, owning the conversations, and determining what we want technology to be.
