Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck is comfortable with his nerdy image. So much so that the avid reader started his own book club last year. Now, the Andrew Luck Book Club has found a home on WFYI Public Radio.
Luck will host a monthly Monday night podcast on WFYI 90.1 FM and is inviting readers to check out his book selections — one for kids (rookies) and one for adults (veterans) each month.
“WFYI and I share a passion for good storytelling, and from here on out you’ll be able to read along with me whether you’re a rookie or a vet, then catch my podcast," Luck said in a statement.
This month, his book selections are "Merlin: The Lost Years" for the younger crowd and "Hillbilly Elegy" for adults.
To help launch the partnership, Luck will host his first live, in-person book club discussion May 10 at WFYI, 1630 N. Meridian St. It's designed to be a parent-child activity with the goal of building family engagement through reading.
There's room for about 120 lucky people in the studio for the live discussion, but there's a catch. It's open to those who pledge a $30 monthly gift or a one-time gift of $360 to WFYI.
