The Hudspeth Family has been visiting Glen Arbor every year since 1997, calling it home during the summer. After welcoming their son Brayden, authors Ryan & Maggie were inspired to write Goodnight Leelanau to commemorate and share their family traditions of countless summers in Leelanau County. Their overwhelming love for the area has created lifelong memories and led to naming their energetic, adventurous dog Leland.
