Exclusive Community Content to encourage our Fellows to go deeper into the Literary Life. 


Welcome to The Friends and Fellows Community brought to you by The Literary Life Podcast.  We are having a great time talking about our very favorite thing--BOOKS! We are overjoyed at the support and enthusiasm surrounding this new podcast and the highly stimulating Literary Life Discussion Facebook group. The conversation in that group is rich, intelligent, and FUN!  We are thrilled that so many people are excited about cultivating a Literary Life. Many people have asked us how they can support the podcast financially. In response to that request, we are excited to launch our Friends and Fellows Patreon.

We have two levels of patrons: Friends and Fellows.  

The first level is our Friends.  These are the people who love the podcast and enjoy participating in the lively and educational book discussion at The Literary Life Discussion Group on Facebook and would like to help us cover our expenses. It takes a lot of work and a great podcast support team to bring The Literary Life Podcast to you. Our Friends help make that happen!

The second level is for Fellows.  The Fellows also want to help us cover production expenses, but would also like to dig deeper in the literary life. Can't get enough of The Literary Life? Become a Fellow and get ongoing exclusive bonus content.  

Fellows' Exclusive Bonuses will include:

  • Discounts on Literary Life merchandise from our store. Get all of your bookish accessories for your literary life.
  • Live Video Q and A's with Cindy and Angelina.  Do you talk back to the podcast? Have questions? Want to know more about the books we read? Our fellows get their chance in Live Video Q and A sessions.
  • Read Alouds by Thomas Banks. You've told us that you cannot get enough of Thomas Banks reading! You've asked us for more. Fellows get short stories, essays, poetry, and more read to them beautifully by Thomas Banks. Play it in your car, on your morning walk, in the gym, as you are falling asleep... 
  • Bonus episodes of the podcast. Fellows get exclusive bonus episodes to scratch their Literary Life itch.
  • Plus extra content from all three of us--Cindy, Angelina, and Thomas. We've been brainstorming ideas, and we want to hear from our Fellows. 

We are committed to providing ongoing great content for our patrons. 

The Literary Life Podcast explores all aspects of cultivating a literary life. Each week we rescue stories from the Ivory Tower and bring them to your couch, your kitchen, and your commute. The literary life is for everyone!

Thank you for your support!
Cindy Rollins, Angelina Stanford, and Thomas Banks
