The Friends of the McGill Library are pleased to present an illustrated lecture by artist and photographer, Bonnie Folkins. The lecture promises to be an illuminating look at her travels with the Kazakh nomadic people across Mongolia and Kazakhstan. The artist has ridden horseback over 1,100 miles in a single journey through Mongolia and over 2,100 miles on multiple trips through Kazakhstan. She is a member of The Long Riders' Guild, an international association of equestrian explorers and long distance travelers and she was recently elected a fellow of the New York Explorers Club.  

Bonnie studied Fine Arts at Mount Allison University and at the International School of Art at Montecastello di Vibio in Italy. She devoted her early career to oil and watercolour painting and created projects on location in places as varied as Italy, India, Portugal and the Azores, Australia, New Zealand, Hong Kong and Macau, Mongolia, South Korea, Japan, Chile, Canada and the United States. Bonnie's work is included in numerous corporate and university collections, including the McGill University Visual Arts Collection.
