Sharing an intimate space with a total stranger can sometimes be an awkward and uncomfortable experience. But award-winning Calgary author, Marcello Di Cintio, is here to help bridge that gap. Marcello spent a year seeking out the often unheard, always extraordinary life stories of cab drivers, here in Alberta and all across Canada.
Their epic, fascinating backstories are profiled in his brand-new book, Driven: The Secret Lives of Taxi Drivers.
A virtual book launch occurred on Thursday, May 13, 2021, and featured Di Cintio and special guest host, Calgary Mayor Naheed Nenshi.
Di Cintio took us for a ride when he joined Grant Stovel on Alberta Morning to discuss all of this further.
