From the two-time Tony Award-winner and star of “Younger” comes Hooked: How Crafting Saved My Life, funny and intimate stories about how crafting has kept Sutton Foster sane while navigating the highs and lows of family, love, and show business (and how it can help you, too).

Whether she’s playing an “age-defying” book editor on TV or dazzling audiences on the Broadway stage, Foster manages to make it all look easy. How does she do it? Crafting. From the moment she picked up a cross-stitch needle to escape the bullying chorus girls in her early performing days, she was hooked. Cross stitching led to crocheting, collages, and drawing. Channeling emotions into her creations centered Foster as she navigated significant moments in her life and left her with tangible reminders of experiences.

In Hooked, Foster shares those moments, including her fraught relationship with her agoraphobic mother; a painful divorce splashed on the pages of tabloids; her struggles with fertility; the thrills she found on the stage during hit plays like Thoroughly Modern Millie, Anything Goes, and Violet; her breakout TV role in “Younger”; and the joy of adopting her daughter. Accompanying the stories, Foster includes crochet patterns, recipes, and more. In conversation with Linda Holmes, the host of NPR’s “Pop Culture Happy Hour.”
