Some Everyday Folk and Dawn by Miles Franklin (1879 - 1954).


It is 1903 and women's suffrage has hit the small town of Noonoon. Though the election campaigners preen themselves for the women's vote, the fight isn't entirely won, for the male residents are bristling at this threat to their supremacy. And down at Clay's there are other problems too: Dawn is now a young woman and in these days of slender chances Grandma Clay must keep an eye on the marriage market. But Dawn, lively and outspoken wants a career on the stage. ( Trove - National Library of Australia)

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!

Goody goody gum nuts - I'll set it up.
All done. Nice of Miles Franklin to die in 1954 and thus be PD for us :D . I've shortened the file name a bit , you can change it if you like

Hi, are you still in need of a DPL? If so, I'd like to give it a go.

Best,

Barbara

Welcome Barbara
I've a sister , an aunt, a great aunt and a cousin called Barbara , not to mention 2nd and 3rd cousins , so I should be able to spell it right :D . You should have access to the MW now , and I'll take down the DPL banner and move us to going Solo - then it's up to you and Kirsty to keep things moving

A rare talent, though. I blame that Streisand person.

Both perfectly OK Kirsty!

Thanks Kirsty. The narrator is enjoyably dry, isn't she?

The only slight misreading that you might like to think about is "floodlights" at 10:21 instead of "footlights" (given that the narrator is an actress) but I'm giving this section a PL OK.

Best,

Barbara

Hi Barbara,

Thanks for that. I have gone back and changed 'flood lights' to 'foot lights'. I'm uploading the new version in the background as I post here. I haven't changed the PL status on the magic window, but you may want to spot check it: hopefully the edit isn't too conspicuous. Thanks for your attention to detail!

Thank you Kirsty. PL OK.

I thought Grandma Clay's story was moving. Made me a bit teary.

Best,

I agree, it was sad, Barbara--much reason to be against the 'swells'!

I've just uploaded Chapter 4. It's a quick one, under 10 minutes.

Thank you Kirsty.

Once again, Chapters 4 and 5 are good. This story is really worth reading, isn't it?

I found the volume of chapter 5 a bit uncomfortably loud after chapter 4. I ran mp3gain on them - it passed Chapter 4 without comment but suggested modifying Chapter 5 by a track gain of -3.

Best,

Barbara
