    Sammanfattning : The purpose of this master’s thesis was to study literacy practices in a reading group of nine women discussing fiction in Swedish sign language.

Finally, the last question aims to explore the reasons behind the very scarce number of reading groups in Sweden discussing fiction in sign language. LÄS MER
