In progress: a Roundup of the Fall 2009 Regional Bookseller Association trade shows

UPDATED 9/28: I'm moving the lists of already-happened trade shows to the bottom of the list.

(And which socially-networked booksellers, publishers, authors, book bloggers are planning to be there.  Let me know if you're attending any of these shows: @mesjak on Twitter.  If there's a Tweetup planned during a show, let me know and I'll update with details.)
