International Dorothy Dunnett Day (IDDD) 2020

The tenth annual IDDD is on Saturday 14 November, 2020. This is certainly a year like no other in the history of our IDD Days, but Dunnett groups around the world are still marking their calendars and making plans! Virtually or in person, groups will be meeting, and at 13.00 (1 pm) local time, they will raise a toast to the Lady who started it all, and to absent friends.

Many groups are meeting Dunnett friends in their area online via Zoom. Some readers have the good fortune, warm climate, or circumstances for in-person gatherings. If changes in circumstances warrant, online gatherings will be the fallback.

Here are early details of the 2020 gatherings and we will add more as soon as we hear about them so please check back frequently. All are welcome, whether you’re in the Dorothy Dunnett Society or not. All you need to qualify is a love of DD’s books!

If you don’t see your area on the list and are interested in organising a gathering — virtual or in person— please send an email to Tina Dallas (our IDDD coordination officer) at email hidden; JavaScript is required and we’ll be happy to assist you.
