What Katy Did at School by Susan Coolidge (1835 - 1905).

This project is now complete! All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/what-katy-did-at-school-dramatic-reading-by-susan-coolidge/

Following Katy's recovery in What Katy Did, Katy and Clover go to Hillsover, a boarding school. Together with their new friend Rosamond Redding, or "Rose Red", they form a Society for the Suppression of Unladylike Conduct--but then they are accused of sending notes to a boy outside the school. Katy and Clover know they have nothing to do with it, but can they prove their innocence to the teachers and principal before they are expelled? ( Temporary summary by Esther ben Simonides)
  • MC: m8b1

    1. 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.
    2. 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.
    3. New to recording?
      Please read our Newbie Guide to Recording!
    4. Where do I find the text? Source text (please only read from this text!): http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/5141
    5. Please claim roles (the numbers in the first column below)! Please note: All Librivox recordings are in the public domain. When you submit your recording, you will be placing your recording in the public domain as well.

      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.

Welcome back everyone who was in the last book! And welcome everyone else!
Here is the DP, where I will be recording claims until I get an MW. You are welcome to play multiple characters as long as they are not in the same chapters. Characters in italics are already claimed. :D

I see you have already put me down for Old Mary again. Since she is only in one chapter, I could probably also help out with another character. I feel a bit too old to play the girls though, can I be one of the teachers ? I don't know the book at all, maybe Mrs Florence ? This name sounds like a teacher. Is she a nice person ? :)

It would be great if you would do Mrs. Florence. She's a teacher (maybe not exactly a nice person, but probably the nicest teacher. :D )

Thank you! She's in fewer chapters this time, so if you'd like to play someone else as well, go ahead. :)
