'THE BELIEVER'

Filling that dread space between the idiosyncratic culture of the young intellectual and the academic ponderousness of the old guard is The Believer, a monthly magazine about books and stuff. Their first soiree features co-editor Heidi Julavits talking with Jennifer Egan, Susan Choi, and Stephen Elliott about political fiction post 9-11—plus Touré interviewing Q-Tip we hope, Chipp Kidd talking to Milton Glaser, extreme banjo-playing, and more.

Go twice. ZIMMER

Film

'THE GIRL WITH THE HAT BOX'

Made in 1927, this charming housing-shortage comedy is Russian director Boris Barnet's best-known movie, mainly because it features the future failed Hollywood star Anna Sten, here a Soviet Kewpie doll with bee-stung lips, working for a shady, profiteering milliner. Pianist Donald Sosin supplies appropriate live music. HOBERMAN

At 7:30, BAM Rose Cinema, 30 Lafayette Avenue, Brooklyn, 718.777.FILM
