And maybe it’s not news to everyone, but we were surprised to learn that Indianapolis Colts franchise quarterback Andrew Luck not only has his own book club, but the usually-reserved QB recently started a podcast in which he speaks with authors. The podcast has been picked up by Indianapolis’ NPR station, WFYI.

This year, the winner of the Innovations in Reading Prize is Barbershop Books, a community-based literacy program that creates child-friendly reading spaces in barbershops.

The program was founded in 2013 by Alvin Irby, an author and former kindergarten and 1st grade teacher, as a way to help young black boys identify as readers.
