Hi,

By this comment, I guess, by default, I admit I broke the rules. In the intro to section 19, Tricia says the year "1865" rather than "1965". It was a little confusing as President Johnson (Andrew) did serve in 1865. What are the chances?

Uh oh. I see this and will fix it tomorrow.

Easy mistake, when for LV we rarely read things from 1965!

Hi Kalamareader! Thanks for this! :) The SNF book coordinator committed this PLing "lapse" while on stand-in duty and begs forgiveness. The BC is also very glad to see Craig. our accomplished DPL, back from vacation and taking over the PLing! :clap:

This is the first group project like this I've been a part of, so I'm not sure, but should this collection have already released?

Paciencia, mis amigos! We're all volunteers at LibriVox. Once all the edits are completed, there's a whole other round of things that have to get done before the collection can appear "in print." When I alert our metacordinaator that the collection is ready to catalog, Jo alphabetizes the selections, so nobody will complain that "he/she/they" got first billing at the top of the list. Then I compose an introductory paragraph, which synthesizes the 20 disparate readings into something resembling a collection.--Not easy to do! I also list "key words" to help people search the collection. Then, since I also make the covers for the collection, I undertake to list all of the readers names and selections on the cover, and I proof this for spelling etc. When the intro and cover are ready, I send those to Jo, and then she has to find time to do the data entry to make the whole thing appear in print.

Here's my intro, so you'll realize we're "underway" and the collection will go to print in all good time:

Twenty short nonfiction works chosen by the readers. Two U.S. Presidents are remembered in "A Colored Man's Reminiscences of James Madison" and Washington's "Address to Congress on Resigning His Commission (1783)." Other topics in history and political theory include two of George W. Ball's memos about the Vietnam War from 1965, "Irish Marriage Rites," "Celts and Celtophiles," Kropotkin on "Anarchism in Socialistic Evolution," a tragedy at sea ("The Titanic"), and a look back at "The Passing of the Sailing Ship." Religion and philosophy are represented with two selections from Kierkegaard's "Preparation for a Christian Life" and a sermon by Spurgeon ("Glorious Predestination"). Biographies pay homage to the mathematical genius Srinivasa Ramanujan. How-to and guidance readings include farming advice from George Washington Carver ("Help for Hard Times"), "Teaching Mathematics with Paper Folding," "Sexual Neuroses," and "Elementary Lessons in Cookery." "The Common Milkweed" celebrates one of summer's roadside flowers. Finally Richard de Bury pens a tribute to books in a selection from the Philobiblon, written in 1345. Summary by Sue Anderson
