Saturday Stories: Cancer, Locked Wards, and 1984

Hugely powerful piece by an oncology nurse who herself gets diagnosed with cancer and her apology to her patients for not understanding them before.

Haunting story from Taylor Elizabeth Eldridge in The New Yorker on her 17 days spent on a locked psychiatric ward.

And Andrew Simmons in The Atlantic on teaching kids about George Orwell's 1984 in 2016
