Award-winning author Neill McKee will offer a photo presentation and discussion on his adventures during 1968-70, while teaching secondary school as a Canadian CUSO volunteer in Sabah, Malaysia (North Borneo), and while a field staffer for CUSO (Canada’s version of the Peace Corps) during 1973-74, as well as on return visits in 1987 and 2006. He climbs the highest peak in Southeast Asia — Mount Kinabalu — has a love affair, and navigates Borneo’s backwaters to make his first of many documentary films. Neill has kept in touch with his friends in Borneo, Malaysia and what has happened to the land and its people after his four years there. He will also discuss the history of Borneo Island and the political, social, economic, and environmental changes in recent years, within Southeast Asia’s regional context.
Neill McKee is a creative nonfiction writer based in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Neill’s book, Finding Myself in Borneo, is available in paperback, ebook, and audiobook at many retail outlets, including Travel Bug and OpCit in Santa Fe.
