This week on Valley Writers Read, we hear a story by Oakhurst author Susan Norman titled "Learning the Ropes." It's about CJ, a precocious teenaged girl who had been sent to a school for delinquents. The parents come to see their daughter on visiting day and watch the youngsters climb a complicated jungle gym. That afternoon, CJ's mother decides to climb the jungle gym herself. This forebodes some big changes in family relationships. KVPR's Leigh Murray reads this story.
