Dale Potter-Clark of Vassalboro plans to speak about and read from her latest book, “Escape from Bunker Hill” during an upcoming Readfield U presentation.

The talk will be held at 2 p.m. Sunday, March 5, in Asa Gile Hall of Readfield Town Hall, 8 Old Kents Hill Road. She will share what she discovered in Readfield that inspired her to write it.

The book tells a story about a native Maine couple that moves to eastern Maine and then to Jacksonville, Florida, to help enslaved people escape north. A group of four of the refugees travel along 1,500 miles of the eastern seaboard until they reach Portland, then proceeds further north to Hallowell and other towns in Central Maine, according to a news release from Margaret Edmondson with the Readfield’s Age-Friendly Committee.

There will be time for questions and answers. The presentation is suitable for middle school students through adults.

Potter-Clark ‘s books will be available to purchase.

Readfield U is a Pop-Up University. For more information, visit readfieldu.org.
