Great, that one would be a good start.
This looks fairly straightforward. The big newspaper headlines towards
the end can go in a blockquote, bolding isn't necessary. Keep an eye on
the section breaks, of which there are a few represented by empty
paragraphs with the "thoughtbreak" class. Those have to be replaced with
<hr/>. There's also some instances of vernacular, make sure to carefully
check the direction of single quotes there because typogrify has a hard
time curling quotes correctly around vernacular.
Make sure to read the Standard Ebooks Manual of Style before starting,
as you won't know what to fix if you haven't read the standards. In
particular, please closely review the semantics, high level patterns,
and typography sections:
The step by step guide will take you from start to finish:
Please email often if you have any questions at all. Our standards are
well-established so there is probably already a standard for formatting
whatever problem you've encountered.
When you're ready, email back with a link to your Github repository so
that I can mark you as having started.
Have fun! :)
