Logos Hope, the world’s largest floating book fair, is scheduled to return to St John’s, October 5 to 15 with over 5,000 different titles of books and hundreds of volunteers.
The books will be below market prices and will cover a range of subjects including education, medicine, hobbies, cooking, children’s titles, arts, academic texts, dictionaries, and more.
The book ship last docked in Antigua’s waters in May 2010, when over 35,000 visitors were welcomed onboard during their thirteen-day stay.
“We are excited to come again and we will be focusing on the three aims that the ship brings to Antigua that is sharing knowledge, health and hope”, said Ruben Muñoz, Logos Hope Coordinator for Antigua, in an interview with OBSERVER media yesterday.
“The visit will be great for everyone on board as everyday we will have teams going around the island to schools, orphanage, prisons; taking donations of books with us”. Muñoz said in addition to their regular book sale and charity work, the Logos Hope will give locals an opportunity to meet with crew members on-board and be entertained.
“We will be having different [activities] on the ship … events including a cultural café and theatre plays. This will allow people to meet with our crew from over 60 different nationalities and just have a good time over coffee or tea,” he said. The programme coordinator said they will be receiving local volunteers to work onboard in the kitchen, receiving visitors or custodian department.
