Harper's Young People, Vol. 01, Issue 22, March 30, 1880 by Various ( - )
Harper's Young People, an illustrated weekly publication for children, includes serialized and one-off short stories, tales from history, poetry, puzzles, and other fun. This 22nd issue of the serial, published on March 30th, 1880, and just in time for April Fool's Day this issue is full of practical jokes! It also includes adventurous stories like that of a daring lad whose bravery makes him a hero, an unusual voyage with an unusual "ship"-mate, tales from the land of the midnight sun, and much more. This periodical was published by Harper & Brothers, known today for their other publications Harper's Bazaar and Harper's Magazine. (Summary by Jill Engle)
  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.

Hello!

I believe that JorWat will be DPL. He will verify that here to let us know for sure.

Also, when I filled out the new project template, I accidentally put the title as Issue 21, March 23... instead of Issue 22, March 30 so the database might have incorrect info.

Thanks!

Jill

Of course I'll be the DPL! And I'll try to be a little more punctual this time...
