West is excited to partner with the West Roxbury Library for this month’s author event with prize-winning author Lois Lowry.
Lowry’s 1993 young adult social science fiction novel The Giver became a major motion picture in 2014, starring Jeff Bridges and Meryl Streep. On Thursday, April 30th at 6 PM, the Friends of the West Roxbury Library host an author reception with refreshments for the award-winning author. At 7 PM a capstone lecture by Lowry will be followed by Q&A. Copies of The Giver can be autographed by the author.
In honor of this terrific literary event, West has created a special cocktail called The Utopian. The Utopian is a specially crafted cocktail made with Bombay Sapphire Gin, fresh lemon, house made honey simple syrup, and fresh blueberries muddled with lavender flower. The fresh flavors of this beautiful cocktail celebrate the springtime season we’re finally embracing. At the same time they provide a burst of color and essence our protagonist Jonas finds so lacking in the “Community” in which The Giver is set. The Utopian is shaken over ice and served in a classic coupe cocktail glass, the petite bowl shaped glass reminiscent of Mad Men era craft cocktails. This drink truly battles the “Sameness” that is imposed on Jonas’s society and instead celebrates uniqueness, freshness, and making new memories with friends.
From March 19 – March 30 order The Utopian and you will be given a coupon for a free copy of The Giver. Bring the coupon to the Library at a certain time when books will be distributed or have it mailed. Bring it to the author event on March 30th and have it signed by Lowry! One book per household while supplies last.

If you’re looking for Sunday Brunch places in Boston, West on Centre is a great destination.

He has brought his award-winning brunch recipes from our sister restaurants downtown to West Roxbury. Taste Boston’s best brunch right here in West Roxbury every Sunday, 10:00am to 3:00pm. We squeeze our own orange juice fresh daily, producing a delicious breakfast drink with a rich color, supreme taste, and bigger blast of vitamins of nutrients than store-bought, packaged OJ.
