“Iris Yang brings her heart, soul, and some critical historical knowledge to her very well-planned presentation. Attendees were charmed by her thoughtful sharing of Chinese history in the context of the incredible story of the Flying Tigers, as well as her writing journey.

Ms. Yang was a pleasure to work with and I very much look forward to having her return next year. Her fine writing, professionalism, kindness, and storytelling skills prompted me to offer my recommendation. I am available to recommend her personally and can be reached at jelevine@dconc.gov or 919-560-0268.”

Jenny Levine, Humanities & Adult Programming Coordinator at Durham County Public Library


"What an interesting, thought-provoking, and informative presentation! Iris Yang combines her personal biography with engaging storytelling, informative slides, and a comprehensive historical knowledge to bring the story of the Flying Tigers to life. Iris is a consummate professional; she’s a delight to work with, and she had the audience completely enthralled and hanging on every word. I highly recommend Iris and her presentation!"

Judy Poe, Assistant Director at Sedona Public Library (events@sedonalibrary.org, 928-282-7714 x116)


“Iris's presentation was so professional, so personal, and so full of good energy that the audience cheered her somewhat boisterously.” Verde Valley Girlfriends


“Iris gave an outstanding presentation on her book, the history of conflict between Japan & China, how that personally impacted her family, how it lead her to pursue a PhD in Botany in America, & how she overcame personal obstacles in her life. The measure of this woman is so much more than this book!” Sedona Hiking, Outdoor Fun & Adventure
