You helped us create a new talking book
To help celebrate this year’s Read for RNIB Day, thousands of people joined us at London Waterloo train station on Friday 11 October to help give literary classic “Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland” a curiouser and curiouser twist.
We invited people to visit a specially designed ‘Wonderland’ at the train station, where they could record a passage from the book in a mass storytelling event.
The finished ‘talking book’ will be available for customers of RNIB’s National Library Service to borrow.
For those who couldn’t be there on the day, don’t worry – they could still take part.
They were able to record their own passage from “Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland” on their mobile phone, computer or dictaphone and send it to us using the short online form below. If you have any questions, check out our audio recording FAQs
If you’d like a different passage, you can always refresh the page to change your option.
Thank you for your support
Thank you for your interest in helping us record a unique crowd-sourced audio book for Read for RNIB Day 2013. Following fantastic support from members of the public and celebrities alike, we have now achieved our mission to give "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland" a curiouser and curiouser twist and are no longer accepting audio recordings.
After some clever editing skills, the newly finished talking book will be available through our National Library Service and you can keep up to date on the book's progress and view exclusive photographs from the day's recording on our Facebook and Twitter accounts.
Thank you for helping us change the story.
