Milan Kundera, the 91-year-old author of "The Unbearable Lightness of Being" and other acclaimed novels, has decided to donate his private library and archive to a public library in the Czech city where he was born and spent his childhood. The Moravian Library in the city of Brno said Thursday that the entire collection would be transported from Kundera's apartment in Paris in the fall.
