In The Shadow Of the Tree: A Therapeutic Writing Guide For Children With Cancer

In the late 1990s, Lynne Golodner hosted writing camps for children in metro Detroit. When one of her campers was diagnosed with leukemia, she started visiting the young girl to write together as a way to process her emotions and experiences going through treatment. Those writing sessions became this book, In The Shadow of the Tree: A Therapeutic Writing Guide for Children with Cancer, with the young patient’s poems as examples for Lynne’s writing exercises. The girl is now a doctor in her own right, working with pediatric cancer patients.
