LibriVox 17th Anniversary Collection

This project is now complete! All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/librivox-17th-anniversary-collection-by-various/
LibriVox is a hope, an experiment, and a question: can the net harness a bunch of volunteers to bring books in the public domain to life..."
Hugh McGuire, LibriVox's founder, August 9, 2005

In celebration of LibriVox's 17th anniversary, here is collection of short works of various kinds and from varied authors which include in their title the words 'seventeen' or 'seventeenth' or the number '17.' Each piece is selected and read by a Librivox volunteer.
This year is the 17th anniversary of our beloved LibriVox. The readings in this collection celebrate that "bunch of volunteers" who make up the worldwide LibriVox community. The readings are held together by their connection to the number 17. The collection is multilingual. Readings can be in any language. The selections, which are chosen by the readers, include fiction, nonfiction, poems, short stories, and articles.

Source text: Select a short work---fiction, non-fiction, or poetry---which includes in its title or subtitle the words 'seventeen' or 'seventeenth' or the number '17.' If you need help finding something, there are some suggestions in the post immediately below this one.

Deadline: Deadline for submissions is August 5, 2022 at 12:01 am your time. If you have submitted a recording which needs correction and is not completed by the deadline, it will be removed from the collection.

Claiming sections: There is no need to claim a selection. Simply record something appropriate for the occasion and post it. Please limit yourself to two contributions per reader.

The selection must be in the public domain. For clarification of what it means for a work to be "in the public domain," please see this section of the LibriVox Wiki: http://wiki.librivox.org/index.php/Copyright_and_Public_Domain. Please stick to works that run less than 60 minutes.

New to recording? Please see our Newbie Guide to Recording for further instructions. A quick guide to our required technical settings can be found here. When you post your file, please tell the BC what name you would like to use in our catalog.

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

LibriVox recording settings: mono (1 channel), 44100 Hz sample rate, 128 kbps constant bit rate MP3. See the Tech Specs

Intro to recording:
Leave 0.5 to 1 second of silence at the beginning.

Say:
"[Title] by [author.] Read for the LibriVox Seventeenth Anniversary Collection. This is a LibriVox recording. All LibriVox recordings are in the public domain. For more information or to volunteer, please visit librivox.org." [Optional: "Read by your name."] "Title."
End of recording:
