The Kansas City Rose Society serves as the steward of the Laura Conyers Smith Municipal Rose Garden in Jacob L. Loose Memorial Park, Kansas City, Missouri. The rose garden is the realization of a dream that began in 1931, when a group of citizens under the leadership of Laura Conyers Smith established the Kansas City Rose Society. The first garden contained 120 rose plants. Today, there are about 3,000 roses of nearly 150 varieties in the 1.5 acre garden.

The Kansas City Rose Society is happy to announce its new partnership with The Writers Place. Nature and art have always been good companions. When you visit the rose garden in Loose Park, we want you to do more than stop and smell the roses. We want you to linger, and readings by local authors will invite you to do that.
This event is FREE and Open to the public.
In case of inclement weather the event will be held in the park's Garden Center.
