International Dorothy Dunnett Day (IDDD) 2022

The twelfth annual IDDD is on Saturday 12 November, 2022. Dunnett groups around the world are marking their calendars and making plans! At 13.00 (1 pm) local time, they will raise a toast to the Lady who started it all, and to absent friends.

Further details will be added as groups make plans, so please check back frequently and have a look at the list of gatherings so far, listed below. 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 location on the list and are interested in organising a gathering, please send an email to Tina Dallas (our IDDD coordination officer) at .
