The World’s Largest Floating Book Fair Is Returning To Trinidad And Tobago


PORT OF SPAIN, Trinidad (GISL) — Logos Hope, the world’s largest floating book fair, will soon return to Port of Spain, Trinidad and Tobago.

Many may still remember our last visit in 2009, when nearly 100,000 visitors were welcomed up the gangways during the 27-day stay. Now, Logos Hope will be making another voyage to two ports in Trinidad and Tobago.

Logos Hope will be open in Port of Spain from January 13th, 2017, and will be berthed at the Port of Port of Spain, berth number 4. “We are looking forward to returning to Trinidad and Tobago. We believe books change lives, and we are excited for the opportunity to welcome many on board to meet our international crew and staff,” said Captain Chris Hughes (UK). “There are those who remember visiting our sister ships in the past. I speak for all the crew when I say that Logos Hope’s upcoming visit will also be a memorable, enjoyable experience.”
