Upcoming Events

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

In celebration of Dr. Seuss, Read Across America Day is coming up on Tuesday, March 2nd. I still have some times available to speak to classes, but they are filling up fast. If you're a teacher or librarian or know someone who might benefit from this free event, make sure you contact me at Lasleybooks@hotmail.com.



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.


Lasley brings to life a gold rush story from his home state of Alaska in this charming debut picture book. A sweet nugget of a story. -Kirkus

Experience all the excitement of a wilderness gold rush through an unexpected narrator: a prospector’s trusted gold pan. -Foreword

This simply-written book is a fun way to incorporate history and real-life facts.
