MV Logos Hope, the world’s largest floating book fair, will be back in St. George’s shortly on another visit to the island.
The ship’s last visit was in August 2009 when over 25,000 visitors were welcomed up the gangways during a thirteen-day stay in Grenada.
Logos Hope will be open to the public from December 6 and will be berthed at the Wharf Road entrance in the “water front area”.
“We are looking forward to the visit to St. George’s. We believe that through our crew’s friendliness and hospitality our visitors can experience how people from all around the world can work together in harmony,” said Captain Samuel Hils of Germany.
“We’re already anticipating being able to share our life stories, as well as the experience of the book fair and International Café, with many who will come and visit”, he added.
Logos Hope’s onboard book fair offers an expanded selection of over 5,000 different titles of books at affordable prices.
The books cover a wide range of subjects including science, sports, hobbies, cookery, arts, medicine, and languages and also children’s titles, academic texts, dictionaries, and atlases.
The public will also get an opportunity to explore the Logos’ Welcome Area, which introduces the vessel through a short movie and interactive displays to the International Café, which has ice cream, drinks and snacks for sale.
MV Logos Hope is operated by GBA Ships e.V., an international, charitable organisation registered in Germany.
Since 1970, the organisation has welcomed over 45 million visitors up the gangways in over 160 countries and territories around the world.
MV Logos Hope will open to the public at the Wharf Road entrance in the “water front” area from December 6 until December 11.
The ship will then leave Port St. George for Colombia, Costa Rica and other ports in Latin America.
