The December 2017 issue of Indianapolis Monthly features Uncle Dan’s Book Nerds and the Uncle Dan and Sophie Jam:
The popular Uncle Dan’s Story Hour at the Red Key Tavern may have run its course, but local literary icon Dan Wakefield walked across 52nd Street this fall and started something equally cool. One Sunday evening a month at The Aristocrat Pub, the author of Going All the Way hosts his well-read friends for a public discussion of books and writing. Uncle Dan’s Book Nerd Night included an appearance from Barbara Shoup at the first event in October. At press time, Wakefield hadn’t yet announced the guest for December, but we’re keeping our fingers crossed for the return of Story Hour visitor Mark Vonnegut (Kurt’s son). Those two families represent a huge chunk of Indy’s literary history.
