Hi Tina:

I'm new to LibriVox, but I am a professional voice artist, so that side of this is not new at all.

If it's still available, I'd love to record the Christmas story from Matthew 1:18 - 2:23 (New International Version).

Cool?

Thanks

Unfortunately NIV is NOT public Domain. You will need to use KJV or WEB. I'm not if RSV is PD or not.

I'd like to contribute a very short story:

"At Christmas Time"
from The Witch and Other Stories, by Anton Chekhov

.
Sorry Tina, I changed my mind and changed my contribution.
The Chekhov piece doesn't work well, particularly as it ends
with a French expression —and an obscure idiomatic expression
(reference) at that.

And so I did this short story instead (with "Christmas" in the title):
"The Christmas Gift That Came To Rupert" by Bret Harte [19:17]

Flagging up another possible for someone in a non-Life+70 copyright country ...

Willa Cather - The Strategy of the Were-Wolf Dog
http://www.horrormasters.com/Text/a0643.pdf

Doesn't sound too Christmassy, I know: I found it while looking for horror stories, and it's definitely too dark for little children to listen to, but it's very lovely, all the same. In a pigeon-hole with The Nightmare Before Christmas. Published in 1896, from a brief Google, but she died in 1947, so the story's not really fair game for me until 2017.
There's honestly no such thing as a stupid question -- but I'm afraid I can't rule out giving a stupid answer : : To Posterity and Beyond!

I don't know if this proposal fits into the parameters of short works on Christmas.

I hope it does. There is a children's chapter book for ages 6-10 called the Life and Adventures of Santa Claus over at the Baldwin's Children's Literature site. It's basically a retelling of European traditions of St. Nicholas, tracing the life of an orphan boy by that name into Santa Claus. It's got some magical writing.

http://www.mainlesson.com/display.php?author=houghton&book=santa&story=_contents

It's 16 chapters, each about 4-5 pages in the facsimile text.

Hi Tina,

As promised, we are sending to your email a recording of "Is there a Santa Claus?" - also known as "Yes, Virginia there is a Santa Claus." Text was derived from the following link:

http://www.newseum.org/yesvirginia/

Thanks for coordinating this,

Hi Denny,

If you're referring to the Life and Adventures of Santa Claus by L. Frank Baum, I believe that kri has recorded this and is currently in the editing stage. However, my understanding is that multiple versions of the same text are always welcome. If it is the book I'm thinking about, it's a great story.

best, Judy

Hi Tina,

Oops! I forgot to assign ID tags. Authorship of 'is there a santa claus?' is credited to Francis P. Church. The rest should be obvious. Will you be able to take care of this on your end or do you want the file resent?
