Virginia's Adventure Club by Grace May North (1876 - 1960).

Volunteers outside the USA: Grace May North died in 1960. The author's work is still protected by copyright in places like Europe, where copyright is author's death plus 70 years, Australia (author's death plus 70 years for authors who died after 1955) or Canada (author's death plus 50 years), UNLESS the rule of shorter term applies.
Following the adventures of a girls school as they form their adventure club. ( Michele Eaton)
    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.
    4. Where do I find the text? Source text (please only read from this text!): http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/61987
    5. Please claim sections (the numbers in the first column below)! 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.

      Prospective Prooflisteners: Please read the Listeners Wanted FAQ before listening! Level of prooflistening requested: standard

    8. AFTER recording
      Need noise-cleaning?

      Save files as
      128 kbps MP3
      virginiasadventureclub_##_north_128kb.mp3 (all lower-case) where ## is the section number (e.g. virginiasadventureclub_01_north_128kb.mp3)

I can sign you up to those parts however please do not record anything until you have submitted your 1-minute test and got the ok. This is not an audition it is just to make sure you have all the technical aspects of the recording correct before you record longer pieces which may be unusable if they are not correct. Please go to the Wiki page to see the instructions on how to record and submit your test.

http://wiki.librivox.org/index.php/1-Minute_Test

You then need to post it in the listeners and readers forum where it will be listened to.

viewforum.php?f=21

I will also need to know under what name you would like to be known in the catalogue. this can be your forum name, real name or another pseudonym of your choosing.

Let me know if you need help with anything.

thanks
Michele
