Upcoming Events

I've got some exciting news to share! But I can't just yet. Soon. Hopefully soon.

Pedro's Pan is going to be featured as a part of the Anchorage School District's "Tales on Trails" which encourages students to get out and move while reading. The trail will have pages from Pedro's Pan along the trail as well as activities at each station.

You will be able to find this at Ravenwood Elementary in Eagle River starting May 3rd and running for two weeks. It is open to the public.

**The trail is located on the north side of the school. 



Pedro's Pan


Pan is not just any kind of a pan, he is a gold pan. But after numerous failures of finding gold, Pan begins to doubt that he is good at his job and worries about letting down his friend Pedro. No matter how hard he tries, Pan can't seem to find the gold.

Be a part of the sometimes humorous adventures of Pedro and Pan as they search for gold and purpose in the wilderness of Alaska.
