It's the end of term, so I am back! Thank you for being patient with me, and please PM if I don't seem to have caught an update that I should have seen.

I read this book years ago, and it's since been one of my favorites. I would love to help with this. My French is laughable, though. Am I correct in understanding that the narrator role a) is still open, and b) is just dramatis personae and intros/outros, as Lucy does all of the actual narration? (I've only done a few recordings, so I'd hesitate to take on anything too extensive since I'm still getting the hang of things.)
If this understanding is correct, can I do the narrator? :)

Hi there,

It's one of mine too!

That is completely correct, so I would love to have you as the narrator. For the dramatic personae section, do post on here if the pronunciation of any character names gives you pause- our amazing DPL (Libby) or I would be happy to advise.

Thank you!

Yay! It looks like there's a pretty awesome pronunciation guide, so thanks, Libby!

This is my first dramatic reading. So, all separate files, right? And on Dramatis personae, I guess I'm just going down the list and saying "[character name] read by [leave space for reader names]"?

Yep, Libby is pretty much the best :D

Generally, yes, it would be one file per chapter, but because you are just reading intros/outros for the most part, I would give the dramatis personae its own file, and then you can record your stuff in increments, like one file for chapters 1-10, 11-20, and so on.

That is correct! Usually readers include "read by" in their own introductions, but sometimes they forget, so it would actually be helpful for you to read "read by" as well, just to be safe :)

2 PL notes for Lucy 14 (both to do with the same word):

51:15 - the line is "commanded a near view of the band of "jeunes gens,"" but I hear "commenced a near view of the band of "jeunes gens""

51:56 the line is "and commended Ginevra's taste warmly," but I hear "and commenced Ginevra's taste warmly"

The link to the pronunciation guide seems not to be working. Does anyone know what's going on with that?

Thanks!
