South Korean Mania tells the story of a local author and his experiences with bipolar disorder misadventures overseas.

WOODSTOCK - 'South Korean Mania' will be hitting the bookshelves later this month. 

A book launch will be held at the Operation Sharing’s quarters at College Avenue United Church on Monday from 10:30am to 1:30pm. 

Author Eric Schmiedl explains what it's about.

"It's running through my bipolar misadventures in South Korea back 10 years ago now when I was teaching english as a second language. It goes through some of the episodes I had while I was there and going through some manic times."
The book is being published by Operation Sharing and only cost's $10.00."

Schmiedl adds it's a sequel to his first book; Don Quixote Versus the Devil.

"I was asked if I would write a sequal some time back and I wasnt really planning on it but then I was looking at the South Korean Olympics and thinking well there's a lot more to the story to tell so i'll go ahead and tell it."

Following the launch Schmiedl will be holding a book signing at the Merrifield Book Shop on Saturday from 12pm to 2pm. 

Schmiedl says the story has a positive message behind it.

"South Korean Mania is aimed at showing people that mental illness is not all about doom and gloom."
