Lucy Day the
My name is Lucy Day Werts Hobor. I am called "Lucy
Day". That's because I have one of those funky southern
double-first names, like Mary Catherine. My maiden name is
Werts, but now I'm Mrs. Hobor.
I was born in April 1981 and grew up in Atlanta, GA where my
parents still live. I have a brother named Charlie who is
8 years younger than I am. I went to grades K-6 at a
school called The Children's School. I went to Woodward
Academy for grades 7-12.
In 1999 I left Atlanta to attend the University of Chicago.
During orientation, I met my husband Aquinas, who lived in my
dorm and was in one of my classes. We became fast friends.
We stayed together throughout college and got engaged in the
spring of our senior year. We both graduated in 2003 with
two degrees: I earned a BA in Linguistics and a BS in Computer
Science, and Aquinas earned degrees in Computer Science and
We moved to Princeton, NJ in Fall 2003 because Aquinas had
been accepted to the PhD program in computer science at
Princeton University. I started looking for a job in
publishing in NY/NJ.
I babysat while job hunting from September to December.
Starting in January 2004 I worked for Educational Testing
Service as a temp. My boss's recommendation at the end of
the project, in March, got me my permanent job working for
Princeton University Press.
On September 4, 2004, my husband and I were married in
Atlanta, GA, in the garden at the Houston Mill House. We
spent a week in Portugal afterwards.
Now we're back.
