ABSTRACT
In this article we present an analysis of discourse and multimodal interaction in a storytelling session that took place in a library in which the main narrator is accompanied by a Spanish Sign Language (LSE) interpreter. This case is part of a larger project that examines storytelling sessions in libraries, bookstores and parks as informal literature socialization contexts. On one hand, we examine the changing relationship between media/modes displayed in the story and the difficulties that this generates for deaf children. On the other hand, we explore deaf children's participation in the event. Our analysis makes explicit the complexities involved in LSE interpretation and the asymmetrical standing of deaf children in these types of events. Also, with the analysis of this episode we consider multimodal awareness as a possible discursive and literary competence that is fostered in these narratives events.
