If you do one thing this coming Monday, October 27, vote in the municipal elections. But if you do two things, then also join local author John Terpstra and Winnipeg writer Ariel Gordon for a writing workshop under the trees. Meet at the east end of the parking lot at Dundurn Castle (610 York Boulevard, Hamilton), dressed for the weather and prepared with paper and pen. The workshop will take place during a guided hike through Hamilton's urban forest. The event takes place from 5 to 7 p.m. and is free to attend.
