Six Women and the Invasion by Gabrielle Yerta ( - ) and Marguerite Yerta (1889-1965).

This is an abandoned project brought back as a group project!

Volunteers outside the USA: Marguerite Yerta Méléra died in 1965. 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), UNLESS the rule of shorter term applies. <p>

A true tale of the wartime resilience of six Frenchwomen whose country town was invaded by the Germans during World War I. - Summary by Jael Baldwin ( )
    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.
    4. Where do I find the text? Source text (please only read from this text!): http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/34985
    5. Please claim sections (the numbers in the first column below)! 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.

      Prospective Prooflisteners: Please read the Listeners Wanted FAQ before listening! Level of prooflistening requested: standard


      Please don't download or listen to files belonging to projects in process (unless you are the BC or PL). Our servers are not set up to handle the greater volume of traffic. Please wait until the project has been completed. Thanks!

Hello :)

I've just uploaded Section 5: Chapter V, Part 1 (20:40)

https://librivox.org/uploads/icequeen/sixwomenandtheinvasion_05_yerta_128kb.mp3

Audacity did something strange while I was exporting the file, so hopefully this works as well on your end as it does on mine!

Hi:

Thanks

Section 5 is PL OK! I didn't find anything weird with your file. Checker said that everything is fine, as far as the technical stuff goes.

Hi:

Sorry, I should clarify after another look at the sections. I can do Sections 8, 9, 10 and 11 that encompasses all of Chapter 7, 8 and 9 I believe.

Thanks

Hi:

Confusion reigns!!

Sorry I uploaded Chapter six as 06 instead of 07 (section number). Here is the amended upload.

https://librivox.org/uploads/icequeen/sixwomenandtheinvasion_07_yerta.mp3 with a time of 25:17:06

Thank you
