LOGOS HOPE RETURNS TO ABU DHABI: Discover new literary gems at the world’s largest floating book fair


Floating book store’s UAE Logos Hope Book Fair 2023 visit also includes stops in Ras Al Khaimah and Dubai

Abu Dhabi booklovers couldn’t be more excited!

Logos Hope is coming to the UAE capital bringing you a fresh collection of books from all over the world, and maybe even a chance to join the crew of the world’s largest floating book fair.

The floating bookstore will dock in Abu Dhabi on 10 May to 5 June as part of a three-city visit to the UAE. Logos Hope’s first stop in the country will be in Ras Al Khaimah on 10-17 April. It will then proceed to Dubai from 17-23 April before concluding its UAE visit in Abu Dhabi. New dates may be announced for the stopover in Ras Al Khaimah, according to Logos Hope.

Having visited more than 150 countries and welcomed over 49 million people to its floating book fair, Logos Hope is a haven for book enthusiasts with over 5,000 titles covering a wide range of genres from fiction to nonfiction, academic, and children’s books, all at affordable prices.

A treasure trove of literary gems waiting to be discovered, Logos Hope is the perfect place to find unusual reads and even forgotten classics and rare editions, as well the latest bestsellers.

Logos Hope, which returns to Abu Dhabi a decade after its last book fair here in November 2013, also organises workshops, concerts and various cultural interactions with visitors and the ship’s international crew, who hail from diverse backgrounds and countries, to share unique stories and experiences.

A literary adventure on a ship unlike any other, Logos Hope promises to be a haven whether you’re a hardcore bookworm, a casual reader or somebody just looking for something new to explore in the UAE capital.

There are even more activities for bibliophiles to engage in Abu Dhabi, especially with March being designated as UAE Reading Month. There are more than 100 literary activities lined up by the Department of Culture and Tourism – Abu Dhabi (DCT Abu Dhabi) to celebrate UAE Reading Month, while Operation Smile UAE’s Charity Book Sale is also happening this month at Al Wahda Mall.

Miral, Abu Dhabi’s leading creator of immersive destinations and experiences, and Al Alami book club are also conducting a series of free-to-attend reading sessions on Saadiyat Island.
