Out of the Dark, by Helen Keller (1888 - 1968)

Volunteers outside the USA: Helen Keller died in 1968. This person's work may still be protected by copyright in countries where copyright duration is determined by the author's death date. In Europe this is 70 years; in Canada it is 50 years; and in Australia it is 70 years for authors who died after 1955.
Out of the Dark: Essays, Lectures, and Addresses on Physical and Social Vision is a collection of Helen Keller's writings, compiled by the author, exploring Socialism, ableism, the education of the blind and deaf, and more. (Summary by Adrienne Prevost)

Target completion date: 2022-3-31

Prooflistening level: Standard
Prospective PLs, please see the Guide for Proof-listeners.

IMPORTANT - soloist, please note: in order to limit the number of languishing projects on our server, we ask that you post an update at least once a month in your project thread, even if you haven't recorded anything. If we don't hear from you for three months, your project may be opened up to a group project if a Book Coordinator is found. Files you have completed will be used in this project. If you haven't recorded anything yet, your project will be removed from the forum (contact any admin to see if it can be re-instated).

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!

Thanks!
Also, I must have miscalculated the number of sections the book has - I don't need section 29.
