theater Two talented women, one you know, one you may not: Glenn Close, whose performance in The Wife is utterly riveting and Jane Anderson, who wrote the screenplay for that film, based on the Meg Wolitzer book. The duo is back at the Public (in previews), with Close starring as Joan of Arc's mother (!) in Mother of the Maid, written by Ms. Anderson.

event Band members from Spoon, The Wrens, The Hold Steady, Wilco, Sonic Youth, Nada Surf and many more perform tonight at Flip These Houses, a "concert of protest songs, political music, and unity through song." At the Knockdown Center in Flushing, $39, net proceeds to Power to the Polls.

movie Jean-Paul Belmondo and Charles Boyer star in the captivating 1975 Alan Resnais film Stavisky, set in 1930s France, playing Film Forum from October 3-11. You can read what Roger Ebert had to say about the movie here. Big bonus: a score by Stephen Sondheim, including the gorgeous Au "Claridge" 2.

book Julie Scelfo's book The Women Who Made New York came out a couple of year's ago, but it feels more timely than ever, what with women being our last, best hope. We thought of this book because it includes Anne Russ Federman, of Russ & Daughters, who passed away September 20. Pictured above, civil rights activist Ella Baker. (Art by Hallie Heald)

food Tasty Peruvian sandwiches are available from Llamita, 80 Carmine [7th/Bedford] 646.590.2771, the little sister of Brooklyn's Llama Inn.
