My name is Ashley and I create videos about literature. I started Climb The Stacks in 2013 as a way to share what I was reading, and it has grown into an educational channel about literature. I’d like to make Climb The Stacks a greater resource for readers and a place to find community around literature.

I make discussion videos (Critically Engaging With LiteratureReading Classics as a WomanReading Books You Don’t Understand), book lists (Favorite Feminist BooksBooks About FriendshipTheologically Interesting Novels), introductions (Introduction to Joan DidionIntroduction to Kurt VonnegutIntroduction to Junot Diaz), reviews (Their Eyes Were Watching GodSlaughterhouse-FiveIn Cold BloodThe Bluest EyeTo Kill a Mockingbird), and more--check out my Where To Begin series!

All of the videos on Climb The Stacks are free, and I want to keep it that way while making it a financially sustainable project. I'd also like to explore new ways of sharing the power of literature through video--interviews, video essays, literary pilgrimages--which I'm not able to do with my current budget. Your patronage will make it possible for me to continue to dedicate several hours a week to Climb The Stacks, upgrade my equipment, and a third thing! Thank you!

Exclusive videos you will have immediate access to if you become a patron at $3 or higher: climbthestacks.com/patreon
