Wendell Pierce on the restorative power of art, his passion for New Orleans and his new book

It is no secret that art often imitates life, but for actor Wendell Pierce, life also has a way of taking on elements from art. He sees it in the way he and the community of New Orleans rebounded after Hurricane Katrina ravaged the city 10 years ago. New Orleans art, he says, whether in the form of food, the unique jazz funeral or second line brass bands, helped to restore the one-of-a-kind spirit the city is known for, something he describes in his new book, "The Wind in the Reeds: A Storm, A Play and the City That Would Not Be Broken" (Riverhead; 352 pages, $27.95).
