    Mark Alan Leslie discusses central Maine's involvement and the historic homes used to shelter runaway slaves during the days of the Underground Railroad at a talk about his book, "True North: Tice's Story," at the Winslow Public Library on Thursday. Pictured is the Nason House, which still stands at 12 Sumner St. in Augusta. According to Charles Blockson's 1994 edition of "Hippocrene Guide to The Underground Railroad," a removable panel behind a large bookcase opened to a hidden room that led to a cellar through which fugitives could exit.
