Andrew Luck Book Club
Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck is as comfortable in the library as he is dodging a pass rush. His love of books even prompted him to start his own book club in 2016, and now the Andrew Luck Book Club has found a home on WFYI Public Radio. Listen in to his podcast on the last Monday night of each month at 9 p.m. on 90.1 FM and on-demand right here on wfyi.org.
Joining the Andrew Luck Book Club is easy. People can visit www.andrewluckbookclub.com and see what books Andrew has selected as the “book of the month.” There will be one book for youth (“Rookies”) and one book for adults (“Veterans”). As people read the book, they can engage with Andrew and other readers through social media using the hashtag #ALBookClub.
First Andrew Luck Book Club Discussion a Big Hit
May 10, 2017
Dozens of fans hung on every word Andrew Luck had to say, but he wasn’t talking football. The Indianapolis Colts quarterback was sharing stories about favorite books and authors, and how he developed a passion for reading.
Based on all the smiles and laughter, the first Andrew Luck Book Club discussion was a rousing success. The event, held May 10 in WFYI’s Reuben Community Room, gave adults and children a rare opportunity to hear Luck talk about a variety of subjects, especially why he’s become such an avid reader.
“It gets me away and is one of the few things I can do and not think about anything else while I’m doing it,” he said. “You can get lost in a good story and end up learning a lot.”
More in-person discussions may take place in the future, but the new partnership between WFYI and Luck is designed simply to get more people reading, especially parents and their children. People can sign up for free at andrewluckbookclub.com and see what books Luck has selected each month – one for adults, one for children. He then discusses the books during his monthly podcast, which will be broadcast on 90.1 FM WFYI Public Radio at 9 p.m. on the final Monday of every month.
