Some Famous Women by Louise Creighton (1850 - 1936).

All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/some-famous-women-by-louise-creighton/


Louise Creighton (1850-1936) was a British author and women's rights activist. The wife of the Anglican bishop of London, she was the mother of seven children. In this short book, Creighton gives us chapters on such well-known women as Joan of Arc, Florence Nightingale, and Queen Victoria. But we also learn about St. Hilda, the 7th century royal princess who became an influential abbess, the prison reformer, Elizabeth Fry, and Isabella Bird, who thrilled Victorian readers with accounts of her lone travels on horseback to remote and perilous places. (Pamela Nagami, M.D.)

    IMPORTANT - soloist, please note: in order to limit the amount of languishing projects (and hence the amount of files on our hard-pressed server), we ask that you post an update at least once a month in your project thread, even if you haven't managed to record anything. If we don't hear from you for three months, your project may be opened up to a group project if a Book Coordinator is found. Files you have completed will be used in this project. If you haven't recorded anything yet, your project will be removed from the forum (contact any admin to see if it can be re-instated).
    Please don't download or listen to files belonging to projects in process (unless you are the BC or PL). Our servers are not set up to handle the greater volume of traffic. Please wait until the project has been completed. Thanks!

And our Librivox adventures bring us full-circle back to Whitby, where James Cook learned to be a sailor!

My best,

Pam

Hi Pam,

Whitby it is! That is very cool. In recent years it's also developed a fine trade in Gothic tourism because it's where Dracula first arrives in England in the novel. It's interesting no matter what period of history you're interested in!

The reading itself is absolutely fine, but I have a question about the section numbering. This chapter was about Hilda, which is currently marked as section 2 in the MW. The recorded intro/outro said section 1 (and the file number is 1). I'm not sure if you were planning on reading the introduction or have decided against it, but the numbering might need rejigging.

Right!

I will move it and read the part of the intro I planned. Thanks!

Geriatrically yours,

Hi Erin and DaveC

Section 1 renamed Section 2 and re-uploaded and marked PL OK.

Hope that’s OK.

Thanks,

Pam

Hi Pam,

No problem at all. I did something very similar with my solo! I don't think it's you, I think it's a human thing about beginning with the second item on the list.

I will add one thing - could you please consider redoing the intro/outro for the Hilda chapter so it's 'section 02'?
