My Projects at LibriVox

I've created this webpage to share the work I've been doing at LibriVox.org this past year as a prooflistener, reader, and book coordinator — learning how to coordinate a group book project was my New Year's Resolution for 2024... and I now have my first group book project in production! LibriVox is a wonderful project to work on and a great community; you can find out more about volunteering for LibriVox at their website, LibriVox.org.

Below you can see the projects I am participating in right now, along with a list of completed projects. To the left, I've embedded an audio playlist of a recently completed project: Erick Berry's Black Folk Tales, published in 1928. You can read the text online at the Internet Archive and listen to the audio there too.

I'm also really excited about doing my first group project, for which I created this anthology: Tales of 1928: A Selection of Folktales, Fables, and Legends from Books Published in 1928. You can see the text of the anthology already at the Internet Archive: 20 great stories from 20 great books, all now in the public domain (in the U.S.) because they were published in 1928. I hope we can get the recording done sometime in February or March!

Completed Projects

For more information about each book, use the LibriVox catalog link. Meanwhile, the Internet Archive provides a flexible listening interface, along with embedding options; that's how I was able to embed the playlist on this page.

As you can see, I have been focusing on African folktales. When I started, there were 150 African folktales in the LibriVox catalog, and now there are over 400. Here's a list of all 400 African folktales now in the LibriVox catalog.
