INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. – Andrew Luck knows how to read a defense, now he wants readers young and old to join his book club.
The Indianapolis Colts quarterback launched the Andrew Luck Book Club Monday. The website will periodically feature two books: one for “rookies” that Luck enjoyed when he was younger and another for “veteran” readers that he’s currently enjoying.
According to the Colts, Luck will use social media to engage with members of the book club and talk live about the selections. He also plans to host Q&A sessions about the books. The first “rookie” selection is Jerry Spinelli’s Maniac Magee; the first “veteran” selection is Daniel James Brown’s The Boys in the Boat: Nine Americans and Their Epic Quest for Gold at the 1936 Berlin Olympics.
“I have always loved to read and have my parents and grandparents to thank for introducing me to the enjoyment of reading at a young age,” said Luck.
“People ask me all the time what I’m reading or if I have any suggestions of what they should read. And, when the topic of starting a book club came up over and over again, I figured it was time to put something together. I’m really excited to see this get off the ground and I’m looking forward to building a community of readers online and through social media.”
Luck wants to use the book club as a forum where people can discover new books and build a community of readers nationwide.
