Washington, July 30 (IBNS): The 2019 Asian American Literature Festival (AALF), co-hosted by the Smithsonian Asian Pacific American Center (SAPAV), along with the Library of Congress (LoC) Poetry and Literature Center and the Poetry Foundation, would be held at the LoC, Washington, Friday through Sunday, August 2–4, 2019, media reports said.

Established in 1997, SAPAC is a migratory museum that shares Asian Pacific American (APA) history, art, and culture through innovative museum experiences online and throughout the US through the Smithsonian Institution's work.

This year's theme for the festival is:  “Care + Caregiving,”  focusing on how care and caregiving are reimagined in literature, and how reading and writing, individually and communally, can serve as care practices.
