From staff reports
Noxapater native, Hanna McCain, recently published her first book, Products of Grandma Hanna’s Skillet which is a compilation of her family’s recipes that have been passed down through several generations.
McCain was raised in Noxapater and she is the daughter of Kathy and Randall Johnson and the granddaughter of the late Evelyn and Conner Hanna and the late Cynthia and Herbert Johnson. She received her Bachelor of Arts degree in Political Science from Mississippi State University in 2009.
McCain began a career as a Counselor for the Mississippi Department of Rehabilitation Services in 2010 just after her college graduation.
In March of 2013 her husband, Joseph, Publisher of Louisville Publishing, convinced her to work as a media consultant for Louisville Publishing, Inc.
After much encouragement from her husband, Joseph, Hanna McCain began to compile her Grandmother Hanna’s recipes. In January of 2014 the final product was sent to press and with her first order ready she along with her publishing partner, The Winston County Journal will host a book signing May 3.
All persons who purchase a book at the event will be automatically entered into a drawing for a caramal cake made directly from a recipe in the book.
McCain is the mother to a 2 year old named Eli. She hopes that one day Eli will treasure these recipes with his family as much as she has with her’s.
Joseph, Hanna, and Eli reside in Noxapater.
