A Room with a View by E.M. Forster (1879 - 1970) .

This project is now complete! All audio files can be found on our catalog page: http://librivox.org/a-room-with-a-view-dramatic-reading-by-e-m-forster/

Volunteers outside the USA: E.M. Forster died in 1970. The author's work is still protected by copyright in places, like Europe, where copyright is author's death plus 70 years, Australia (author's death plus 70 years for authors who died after 1955) or Canada (author's death plus 50 years).
A Room with a View is a 1908 novel by English writer E. M. Forster, about a young woman in the repressed culture of Edwardian era England. Set in Italy and England, the story is both a romance and a critique of English society at the beginning of the 20th century. (Placeholder summary by Wikipedia)
  1. Is there a deadline?
    We ask that you submit your recorded sections within 1-2 months of placing your claim. Please note that to be fair to the readers who have completed their sections in a timely way, if you haven't submitted your recording(s) after two months, your sections will automatically be re-opened for other readers to claim, unless you post in this thread to request an extension. Extensions will be granted at the discretion of the Book Coordinator. If you cannot do your section, for whatever reason, just let me know and it'll go back to the pool. There's no shame in this; we're all volunteers and things happen.
    Please do not sign up for more sections than you can complete within the two month deadline.
  2. How to claim a part, and 'how it all works' here

    To find a role to record, simply look at point 5. below at the sections. All the ones without names beside them are "up for grabs." Click "Post reply" at the top left of the screen and tell us which role you'd like to read. Read points 6. to 8. below for what to do before, during and after your recording.
  3. New to recording?

    Please read our Newbie Guide to Recording!
  4. Where do I find the text? Source text (please only read from this text!): Please read only from the documents linked in the Magic Window!!
  5. Please claim roles (the numbers in the first column below)! Please note: All Librivox recordings are in the public domain. When you submit your recording, you will be placing your recording in the public domain as well.

    If this is your first recording, please let me know under which name or pseudonym you'd like to appear in the LibriVox catalogue. We can also link to a personal website/blog.

A big apology to my British, Canadian, Australian, and really all my non-US friends. When I started putting this project together I didn't realize that a) A Room with a View was written very early in E.M. Forster's career and b) he lived to be 91 years old. I don't believe it's PD in any Life+ country. I do encourage you to obey your country's copyright laws when claiming roles. However, if you are planning a trip to the US you can feel free to claim a section and record it while you're here! :)

I think I can plan a trip state side just long enough to record Minnie, if you'll let me? ;)
