Rev. E. Brooks Andrews will speak on his newly published book, “Balancing On Barbed Wire,” at the monthly Omoide (“memories”) program at the Japanese Cultural and Community Center.  According to Rev. Andrews,The book is the personal account of lost relationship and redemption with my father, Rev. Emery Andrews, and the WWII Japanese American internment.” The event will take place from 1 p.m. – 2 p.m. on May 21 and is free and open to the public.
Rev. Andrews followed in the career footsteps of his father, the late Reverend Emery Andrews, who was revered in the Japanese American community before, during and after World War II.  As pastor of the Japanese Baptist Church from 1929-1955, the elder Rev. Andrews moved his family to Twin Falls, Idaho, to provide assistance and guidance to his Nikkei congregation incarcerated at the nearby Minidoka War Relocation Center.
