Blue Sun, Yellow Sky by Jamie Jo Hoang

Author of Behind Closed Doors and The Breakdown B. A. Paris will be releasing a new book Bring Me Back 6/19/18

First teaser trailer of Mary Poppins has been released and stars Emily Blunt and Meryl Streep.

Avengers Infinity War’s release date has been moved up to April 27th. The information was shared via a staged Twitter Chat between Marvel and Robert Downey Jr. Clever move.

A hilarious video has been shared showing the similarities between The Shape of Water and Splash. It’s always interesting to see how newer films have been influenced by cult classics.

Season 3 of Netflix’s sci-fi hit Stranger Things will add Maya Hawke as one of the new leads and has upped Priah Ferguson to a recurring role.

More excellent news for novelist Celeste Ng. Little Fires Everywhere will be turned into a series starring Reese Witherspoon and Kerry Washington.


The Inwood Library redevelopment plans are here; the city along with the New York Public Library announced plans to transform the site at 4790 Broadway into a 14-story residential building with a three-story library at the base.

The Witchita Eagle reported this week The Friends of the Wichita Public Library will hold another $5-a-bag used book sale this week – a final blowout before the library moves to its new digs at Second and McLean Boulevard later this spring.

The White Bird Clinic is offering free walk-in counseling and referrals at the Downtown Eugene Public Library. They said they aim to increase community access to White Bird’s services. For more information click here.

Cedar Mill Community Library
Let Our Daughters Be Funny (and Feisty!)
March 14, 2018 @ 7:00 – 8:00 pm
Encouraging girls to be funny results in strong, smart, confident young women. This funny/serious talk by an outspoken advocate for funny girls is full of practical ’girl power’ advice and humor. *Parents are invited to bring their teens with them to this session.

This was the year to root for maybe not necessarily performances but actors that hadn’t been given due credit before.

Sam Rockwell finally won an Oscar for his performance in Three Billboards Outside of of Ebbing Missouri A mother personally challenges the local authorities to solve her daughter’s murder when they fail to catch the culprit.

Gary Oldman has worked as an actor for 36 years and he’s finally walking away with an Oscar. I couldn’t believe when I heard that. I’m so happy for him and found his Oscar winning role in The Darkest Hour magnificent.

Roger A. Deakins finally wins, I guess 14th time is a charm, for his cinematography in Blade Runner 2049. He’s been the cinematographer on a few films you may have heard of including Fargo, The Village, No Country for Old Men, and Sicario.

I’m also rewatching Breaking Bad and rewatched Speed and The Net. Also for all of you Oregonians out there I’m watching Gravity Falls and I’m loving it.

To the Stacks and Beyond Promo   <—- This will take you to a link that’s shareable!

Welcome Fellow Nerds

My name is Stephanie Rose and I’m a freelance writer, photographer, librarian, former radio show host, and a therapist in my past career. I have a weird fascination with serial killers, obsessively watch films and shows over and over as well as discovering new ones. (Speed, Armageddon, and The Silence of the Lambs to name a few) I love reading and libraries. They saved my life and helped me cope with anxiety and depression.

So that’s a little about me. Now what’s this podcast about? Well mostly my ramblings of books, films, shows, true crime, libraries, and news relating to these areas. My random and contagious excitement for things like the release date for Castle Rock or the adaptation in the works for the mystery novel Sharp Objects by Gillian Flynn. Random discoveries of Ryan Gosling being in both Goosebumps and Are You Afraid of the Dark? You’re welcome. My mind was blown too.

So if falling asleep watching Goosebumps or reading a true crime novel sounds like your cup of tea give To the Stacks and Beyond a listen.  Oh and if you like free stuff sign up for our mailing list and you’ll be entered into our monthly giveaways. Want even fancier prizes? Donate —>

To the Stacks and Beyond premieres on Friday March 9th!
