This project is now complete. All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/harpers-young-people-vol-01-issue-16/

Harper's Young People was an illustrated weekly publication for children includes delightful serialized and one-off short stories, tales from history, poetry, puzzles and fun. This 16th issue of the serial, published on February 17, 1880, features stories of a baby saved from a flood, a lesson in the evils of shoplifting, a profile of the wild boar, a beloved child lost and then found with aid from birds, and much, much more. This serial was published by Harper & Brothers, known today for their other publications Harper's Bazaar and Harper's Magazine. (Summary by Jill Engle)
  1. How to claim a part, and "how it all works" here To find a section 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 section you would like to read (include the section number from the left-most column in the reader list, please). Read points 6. to 8. below for what to do before, during and after your recording.
    -
  2. New to recording? Please read our Newbie Guide to Recording!
    -
  3. 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.

Great! Glad you're on board again! I did check your last post in issue 15 to see if you said "see you in issue 16" before I preclaimed for you. Thanks for confirming.

I know this is a new claim, but it was short and thought I'd get it in quickly. Besides, I wanted to be in before BettyB :mrgreen:
