/> Dana Potowski is a restaurant critic and food writer and a longtime member of a progressive Unitarian Universalist congregation in Southern California. Just as she??s finishing the book tour for her latest bestseller, Dana is asked to join the church search committee for a new minister. Under pressure to find her next book idea, she agrees, and resolves to secretly pen a memoir, with recipes, about the experience. That memoir, Search, follows the travails of the committee and their candidates??and becomes its own media sensation.
Dana had good material to work with: the committee is a wide-ranging mix of Unitarian Universalist congregants, and their candidates range from a baker and microbrew master/pastor to a reverend who identifies as both a witch and an environmental warrior. Ultimately, the committee faces a stark choice between two very different paths forward for the congregation. Although she may have been ambivalent about joining the committee, Dana finds that she cares deeply about the fate of this institution and she will fight the entire committee, if necessary, to win the day for her side.
This wry and wise tale will speak to anyone who has ever gone searching, and James Beard Award??winning author Michelle Huneven??s food writing and recipes add flavor to the  delightful journey.

Loved this book! A favorite of 2022! ( )
  baystateRA | Aug 13, 2023 |
If you've ever been on a board/committee or ever worked for a board, you will love this book. I felt like I was a participant and was fully invested in the twists and turns of working with a diverse group toward a "common" end. Will individual wishes take precedence over the task at hand? How will people work (or not) together? What will you learn about yourself? What will be revealed when all is said and done? The first person narrator was a great choice and yes, there are a number of views on religion since the group is selecting a church leader, all of which I enjoyed even though I am not religious. I found the author's choice to write the book as someone else fascinating and effective. Thoroughly enjoyable. ( )

Really enjoyed this book. Not sure who will like it. Interesting how committees become so disfunctional. Like the characters. Was it a memoir or novel ( )
