In conjunction with the Abraham Lincoln Bicentennial celebration, Quiddity's "Better Angels' issue features a collection of creative responses — including poetry, artwork, fiction, essays, and a radio play — to Abraham Lincoln's literary essence from new, emerging, and established writers. The “Better Angels” issue was generously funded with a grant from the Illinois Abraham Lincoln Bicentennial Commission.
