Luck to Receive Indy Reads Literacy Hall of Fame Award
Indy Reads has named Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck recipient of the 2018 Indy Reads Literacy Hall of Fame Award. The award will be presented to Luck at the 20th annual Alphabet Affair gala on April 21. The gala, a fundraising benefit for Indy Reads’ literacy programs, will be held at the
Indianapolis Central Library.
The Indy Reads Literacy Hall of Fame Award is given to a member of the Indianapolis community who champions and promotes the cause of literacy in significant and long-lasting ways. Luck was chosen as an honoree for his work with The Andrew Luck Book Club, an online book club where he shares the joy of reading with others.
Approaching its third year, the book club sparks conversation and fosters community through monthly book recommendations for rookie and veteran readers across genres and generations. Recent recipients of the Indy Reads Literacy Hall of Fame Award include Betsy Delgado of Goodwill of Central & Southern Indiana (2017), Indianapolis author Dan Wakefield (2016), and educator Sarah Green and author John Green (2015).
